Good guy Dave Grohl was at it again on Monday night, as the Foo Fighters frontman teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel to honor a trauma nurse on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of Kimmel’s #HealthCareHero series, Grohl surprised TJ Riley, a lifelong Foo Fighters fan, by performing an acoustic version of “Everlong”. “I feel like I’m having a coronavirus dream,” Riley joked after Grohl first came onto his screen.
What’s more, the Life is Good Foundation gifted Riley and his department with $10,000 gift packages as recognition of their efforts.
