Recently, the ‘Paper Machete’ singer spoke to NME about his “romance” with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.


“Dave has been one of the longest romances I’ve had that’s worked. He’s such a good guy, but I also love his dark side. I love mixing our watercolours together like that, just in conversation. We go to this place, that I won’t name, just to eat breakfast and waffles and talk about times,” he said, opening up about his friendship with Grohl who has performed with his band over the years, with the two previously teaming up  in their side project Them Crooked Vultures with Led Zeppelin‘s John Paul Jones.
