Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl already has a reputation as one of rock's "good guys," and now that rep may find its way into bars and restaurants around the world. According to the Philadelphia Enquirer, Grohl was in Philadelphia over Memorial Day weekend for a wedding and found his way to the Smith & Wollensky bar in his hotel for a few drinks. On Friday night (May 25th), he had one drink, but returned on Saturday night (May 26th) for a few more. The tip both times? $1,000.
- Grohl may be capable of laying big bucks down on the bar, but his bandmate and drummer Taylor Hawkins told us that Grohl remains down to earth despite his and the band's many accomplishments: ["He's definitely not a rock star in any way, shape or form, you know. He doesn't have that...so much sense of entitlement with so many guys out there that I see. Just, like, playing festivals and stuff, you see some of these people and you're like, 'Dude, you're just a f***ing musician.' And most of the time people who act like that aren't even good ones."] SOUNDCUE (:16 OC: . . . even good ones.)
- Foo Fighters recently performed as the backup band for Mick Jagger on last month's season finale of Saturday Night Live.
- The group plays Milwaukee's Summerfest on June 28th and San Francisco's Outside Landsfestival in early August before trekking over to Europe.
- Grohl has been working on his documentary Sound City, about the legendary Los Angeles recording studio, which should premiere in early 2013.
