Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters discussed everything from interviewing President Obama for their HBO series Sonic Highways to an awkward interaction the frontman had with Prince during the band’s recent appearance on The Howard Stern Show . The radio host also coaxed stories about Grohl’s squashed beef with Courtney Love, the singer’s e-mail friendship with David Bowie and Foo Fighters keyboardist and former Wallflowers member Rami Jaffee’s estrangement from Jakob Dylan. 10 Things We Learned Hanging With Dave Grohl The singer’s interview with Obama will be a part of the Sonic Highways series finale on Friday. Grohl said that he wanted to speak to the president about the opportunities America offers musicians in a broad sense, referencing how blues icon Buddy Guy went from playing a homemade guitar in his early days to receiving a Kennedy Center Honors award. But Stern wanted to know, “Did you feel like maybe you were wasting his time?” Grohl said no and offered that after the interview, Obama “was like, ‘Next time you come, bring the kids.'” “It was a great interview because he had a tough day,” said the Foo Fighter, who added he had to go shopping for a jacket to wear for the interview.
