A fan bumped into Grohl at a Michaels craft store in the US, with a friend of the man in question later posting a picture of the two together to Reddit.
The photo led to Foos fans making a series of craft-themed puns out of various song lyrics, including lines from ‘Everlong’ (“If any thread could ever feel this reel forever”), ‘Best Of You’ (“Is someone knitting a vest, a vest, a vest with you?”) and ‘My Hero’ (“There goes my hero. Watch him as he sews”).
