In the latest edition of Dave’s True Stories, Dave Grohl takes us back to 2011 when he attended a Prince show here in LA. He then was able to make his way backstage and meet Prince and got the offer to Jam together.

Dave said:
“he (Prince) was asking me to jam. It was a proposition that I had wished for my entire adult life, but never in my wildest dreams imagined possible. … It took every ounce of my being not to drop to my knees right then and there and assume the classic Wayne and Garth ‘We’re not worthy!’ ritual. … I somehow maintained a thread of composure, thanked him for an amazing night, and floated back to my friends in the other room with those four words still echoing in my brain. The countdown began

Grohl went on to describe how his phone is alway about to die but the week he was waiting for Prince’s phone call it was always charged with the ringer maxed out.
