For reasons that are for the moment mysterious, Dave Grohl was in Toronto Saturday (June 1) hanging out with Geddy Lee. That was all fine, but Geddy had a signing event for his Big Beautiful Book of Bass at Cosmo MusicFest that afternoon.
“No problem,” Dave apparently said. “I’ll drive you!” So he did.
I just happened to be at the event four feet from the spot where the Grohl-driven SUV parked. As Geddy stepped out of the passenger side door, Dave got out of the driver’s side and raced past me into a staff entrance exclaiming “Sorry! Gotta pee!”
And with that, he was gone.
I kept a lookout for him for the rest of the afternoon but try as I might, I couldn’t find Dave. Maybe I should have paid more attention.
