The Grohl-McCartney bromance runs deeper as the Foo Fighters frontman reveals the Beatle helped him recover from his broken leg.

Speaking to the Herald Sun recently, Grohl explained how McCartney offered to help organise his surgery. “He and his family basically set up my entire surgery in London after I broke my leg. It still blows my mind,” he said.

Elaborating, he went on to explain how McCartney has been a huge influence on his career.

“I wouldn’t be playing music if it wasn’t for Paul McCartney,” he said, “because I learned how to play guitar with Beatles songbooks and playing along to Beatles records. But I also would not be walking right now if it was not for Paul McCartney. He knows some good fucking doctors.”

Grohl also recently spoke about McCartney’s contribution to the new Foo Fighters record, Concrete And Gold, telling ET Canada: “Paul McCartney plays drums on one of our songs. He’s a pal. We’ve known him for a long time. He’s great. He’s the most wonderful person in the world. He’s a great guy.”

Drummer Taylor Hawkins added: “He hadn’t even heard the song. He comes in and Dave picked up and acoustic [guitar] and showed him real quick. He sat on his special drum set that his tech set up for him. I sat there with a drumstick conducting. He did two takes.”

Concrete and Gold is out September 15.
