Coffee Killer

In the league table of rock star addictions, coffee must be languishing somewhere around mind-table, not bothering or interesting anyone in particular, but on its day capable of turning over a big foe. It’ll never trouble heroin or crack for the big honours, mind you. However, just recently coffee managed to take down rock legend Dave Grohl, who hospitalised himself with his intake, which must make them very of the lads proud indeed. They’ll be dancing on the streets of Nescafe tonight.

‘We were in the studio making a record and I was drinking a lot of coffee,’ he told Absolute Radio last night. ‘I was doing Vultures stuff at night, Foo Fighters stuff during the day and I had a newborn at home so I was sleeping two-three hours a night on an air mattress in a guest bedroom. And yeah, I had too much coffee, I started to get chest pains so I went to the hospital and they told me to stop drinking the coffee.’ Thrilling. Oh, there’s a video too.
