Dave Grohl about the girlfriend who dumped him and his revenge 35 years later

Dave Grohl talked with GQ Magazine about a funny story involving his first girlfriend.


Read what he said:

“I get very lucid dreams, have done my entire life. When I was 11 or 12, I fell for this new girl in my school, Sandy Moran… Eventually, we got it together.

“I asked her out, she said yes and we were going steady. It was for like four days or something – ridiculous.

“Anyway, three or four days later she broke up with me and the very same night I had this dream. I was in an arena full of people and I’m at the front, shredding some guitar lead, the audience is going nuts, totally loving it.

“Then at the front down, I look down and there she is, Sandy, right in the front row. Crying her eyes out. She looks up to me and mouths, ‘Dave, why did I break up with you?’

Real life

“The funny thing is, that actually happened.

“We played a show in Washington, DC, a couple years back. It was like a school reunion, about 400 of my old pals were there on the guest list.

“I hear from someone that Sandy wants to come down… Sure as hell, I am on stage in my home town, same as the dream I had 35 years ago, ripping a guitar lead and I look out into the crowd and there she is, front row.

“Sandy fucking Moran. She’s not crying this time though, she’s just looking at me, shaking her head like, ‘You asshole.'”
