Dave Grohl ‘rushed to doctor’ during Them Crooked Vultures album session

Band joke that drummer had taken in 'too much caffeine'

Them Crooked Vultures have joked about how drummer Dave Grohl was supposedly “rushed to doctor” because he’d overdosed on caffeine – by drinking too much coffee.

The band, also featuring Queens Of The Stone Age‘s Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, posted a video online explaining Grohl‘s coffee-drinking habits. Watch it by scrolling down and clicking below.

In the video, which features studio footage of the band at work on their next album, it is explained that, “Two weeks after this video was shot, Dave was rushed to doctor due to the onset of unwanted physical effects caused by too much caffeine. For reals. He was kind of a mess.”


The message continues, “Since then he has reduced his intake of the super delicious hot beverage to a healthier level.”

Watch the video below to see Grohl‘s caffeine intake first-hand and for an inside look into the recording of the band’s next album, the follow-up to the trio’s self-titled debut, released last November.
