Dave Grohl Shares The Story Of How His Worst Nightmare Came True During A Tour In New Zealand
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl revealed his biggest fear during a recent appearance on BCC Radio and explained how he felt when he experienced it.
In the conversation, Dave stated that being stuck in the elevator is his greatest fear even though he is not a claustrophobic person but for some reason, he is so afraid of being stuck in the elevator.
Furthermore, Dave talked about the time when this fear came true in New Zealand and said that he was on the 40th floor in a hotel and packed his bags into the elevator. For some reason, the elevator stuck after going down three floors.
Unfortunately for Dave, nobody recalled him even though he spammed the lobby button in the first place. Afterward, Dave mentioned that he drank almost the whole bottle of wine as he was stuck in the elevator.
Here is what Dave Grohl said when asked about his greatest fear:
“Being stuck in an elevator. I’m not a claustrophobic type, but for whatever reason, there’s something about being stuck in an elevator. Once in New Zealand, I did get stuck in an elevator.
We were staying in this hotel, I was on like the 40th floor, and I packed all my bags and I was rolling them into the elevator, the record company had given me this bottle of wine that had a Foo Fighters label on it or something like that, and I got out of the elevator, I hit ‘down,’ the elevator went down about three floors and just stopped.
And I’m like, ‘Geez, open up!’ I kept hitting ‘lobby, lobby, lobby,’ and nothing’s happening. Then I’m hitting ‘door open, door open, door open’ – nothing’s happening. I’m flipping out, so I hit the little telephone button and they’re like front desk, and I said, ‘Hey, I’m stuck in your elevator on like the 38th floor.’
And they’re like, ‘We’re so sorry, we’ll have someone up there right away,’ and I immediately started to panic. I looked at this bottle of wine, it had a screw top on it, and I ripped this bottle – it was 11 o’clock in the morning – I ripped this bottle of wine open and just downed half the bottle. And as I’m guzzling the wine, the elevator starts moving.”
