Adam is sharing his experience trying to conjure who the special guest was, he calls the first band “The HAIMS” (HAIM) and his conversation with Kevin Hench about the band as he knows them from taking his daughter to see Taylor Swift.

Adam says next was Stevie Nicks, she kept handing shit to other band members, hilarious riff.


Adam is now riffing about her on stage, he says she sounded good but wasn’t moving around too well, Adam cites her drug history and BB brings up her advanced age.

Adam interrupts his own story to get to


#MangriaMoment Winner Danielle, she snuck the Mangria bottle into The Gorge in Wa State for a concert, Adam asks who the Foo’s brought to Washington with them, and she confirms there were no special guests for that different show, of the same tour.

Adam is wrapping up the conversation and they move on.


Adam is now doing a Zip Recruiter Live Read


Adam is now adding David Wild and Phil to the line, David is making his 92nd appearance on the show and Phil is making his 5th appearance (Camoes count!) and he was also on episode #8 of ‘Take a Knee’ available via the archive for premium subscribers.

Adam is telling them about running into Dave Grohl’s mom and how she recognized him and remembered he lived next to her daughter.


Adam is about to get to the “Dave Grohl Incident” and possibly tell a new one, but he always forgets about this first incident from 1997.

It’s unclear if this episode aired in the CLL feed, Loveline – 1997-03-xx (No Guest, Dave Grohl Incident 1) where Adam apparently didn’t pay proper attention to Louise Post (repeat Loveline guest with her band Veruca Salt) when he was greeting her boyfriend Dave, Adam didn’t immediately recognize her and she took offense which led to some friction.


Then again in 2003, Adam was going by Dave Grohl’s sister’s house to say hello, his sister lived in Adam’s neighborhood which lead to this “Adam says that Dave is pissed off at him for knocking on his door, being greeted by Dave’s fiancé and then later explaining to Dave that a floozy answered the door. He didn’t know that it was his fiancé.”


Dave did come back for WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 2003 – GUEST: FOO FIGHTERS • HOST: ADAM, DR. DREW where he recounted his version of events and then Adam publicly apologized.

Then Dave came back again for THURSDAY, JUNE 23, 2005 – GUEST: FOO FIGHTERS • HOST: ADAM, DR. MARCEL so clearly any remaining hatchets had been buried by then.

Adam is recounting the story of running into Dave’s fiancé who was having a late morning, Adam doesn’t recall how it all went down.
