Dave Grohl is in Toronto hanging with the guys from Rush to prep for London

Dave has been tight with Geddy and Alex (and, once upon a time, Neil) for years. This week, Dave was in Toronto hanging with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson at Barberian’s, an old-school steakhouse on Elm Street known for its extensive wine cellar. With them was drummer Omar Hakim.

Okay, so why? To rehearse for the first Taylor Hawkins tribute concert in London next weekend. Wouldn’t you love to be able to hang around that rehearsal space for a bit?
