Kentucky rockers Cage the Elephant, currently touring the US with the mighty Foo Fighters, must have been cursing their luck when drummer Jared Champion was hospitalised with a burst appendix on Monday night. That was, until Dave Grohl phoned in to find out if he could jam.
"Dave somehow heard what had happened and called our tour manager. He said, 'Hey, so do you think the guys would go for it?'. Our manager was like 'Um, yeah!!!'', Cage the Elephant guitarist Lincoln Parish told Spin Magazine.
"I had to pinch myself. I turned around and Dave Grohl is playing the drums. It's an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Nobody can replace Jared. But it's Dave fucking Grohl. If you're going to be replaced by anybody, it might as well be the best".
