Recently, Grohl made headlines after revealing how he got his own back on an ex-girlfriend after being dumped.
In an interview with GQ, Grohl told the story of having his heart broken by his childhood sweetheart Sandy, who broke up with him after four days when he was 11.
“When I was 11 or 12, I fell for this new girl in my school, Sandy Moran …” he said. “Eventually, we got it together. I asked her out, she said yes and we were going steady. It was for like four days or something – ridiculous.”
“The very same night I had this dream. I was in an arena full of people and I’m at the front, shredding some guitar lead, the audience is going nuts, totally loving it,” he explained. “Then at the front down, I look down and there she is, Sandy, right in the front row. Crying her eyes out. She looks up to me and mouths, ‘Dave, why did I break up with you?’”
Years later, Sandy did actually attend a Foo Fighters show, though no tears were shed. “We played a show in Washington, D.C, a couple years back. It was like a school reunion, about 400 of my old pals were there on the guest list,” Grohl added.
“I hear from someone that Sandy wants to come down… Sure as hell, I am on stage in my hometown, same as the dream I had 35 years ago, ripping a guitar lead and I look out into the crowd and there she is, front row. Sandy fucking Moran… She’s not crying this time though, she’s just looking at me, shaking her head like, ‘You asshole.’”
