Support from fans and musicians alike poured in last June when Dave Grohl broke his leg during a Foo Fighters concert in Sweden. Lionel Richie was one of those who sent his regards, gifting the frontman with an enormous basket of muffins.
“When I got out of surgery I was in my hospital room and started getting flowers and get-well cards,” Grohl recounted earlier this year during a Grammys tribute concert to Richie. “One day my wife comes into the room and says, ‘Wait till you see the muffin basket that just showed up.’ This was the biggest muffin basket I’ve ever seen, it was like 500 muffins.”
During a SiriusXM Town Hall interview with both artists earlier this month, Grohl returned the favor to the R&B icon. “I had to bring you something tonight, it’s only fair,” the Foo Fighters rocker said, at which point two crew members hauled a massive metal pot overflowing with muffins onto the stage.
“I had to bring you this muffin basket. Look at that! That’s HALF the size of the muffin basket you gave me! Half the size!”
