Dave Grohl thinks he has blown the Foo Fighters chance of performing at the Super Bowl.
The 'Learn To Fly' hitmakers have yet to grace the iconic half time show at the annual sporting event and now Dave thinks he might have blown their chances completely after he drunkenly told the organisers that he "didn't want to do it anymore".
Speaking on Los Angeles' KROQ radio station, he said: "I've had multiple conversations over the years with them where they say, 'We want to have a rock 'n' roll band. Do you think you could do it? Do you think you could do a stadium?' I was like, 'Yeah man, we do it all the time.' We're like, 'Oh my God, I think we're gonna do the Super Bowl!' And then it'll be, like, Madonna or Katy Perry or somebody like that ... I actually got really hammered at this party in France once and got to meet the dude that does the Super Bowl thing, and I was like, 'I don't even want to do the Super Bowl! I used to want to do it. Now I don't want to do it anymore!'"
Meanwhile, Dave previously admitted he treats every Foo Fighters album as if it could be their last.
He said: "Believe me, my Dad, he was a bad ass, and a super smart dude, and a wicked musician with perfect pitch. So he didn't take any of this lightly, and one of his friends that he grew up with was a famous drummer in Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass. When his friend passed away he kind of had nothing. He spent all his money, so he kind of blew it. So when Nirvana became popular my Dad was like, 'Dude, look, listen. This is what happened to my friend, you know this ain't going to last, you better treat every single cheque like it's your last one, and don't mess around.' I was like, 'Okay.' I honestly did, and to this day, I still feel that way. I feel like, okay, well this is going to be the last record, this is going to be the last record."
