Foo Fighters celebrate with champagne and chicken

Foo Fighters would rather relax after a concert with a bucket of fried chicken and a bottle of champagne rather than caviar and drugs.

Dave Grohl loves relaxing after a concert with a bucket of fried chicken and a bottle of champagne.

While the Foo Fighters frontman revealed he and bandmates Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear, love the perks of his job, including private jets - they are also happy with the simple things in life.

He told NME magazine: "I don't think I need the blow [cocaine] and the paparazzi, but I like flying around in private jets. Those are nice.

"I'll tell you how it is in the Foo Fighters. One of our favourite things after shows used to be a really nice bottle of champagne, freezing cold. And a bucket of cheap fried chicken. To me that's heaven. And it's exactly what the Foo Fighters are like.

"We live in a world where we can afford a nice bottle of champagne but I'd much rather eat this greasy bucket of fried chicken than caviar and stuff like that. That's kind of how we roll."

Dave is, however, now getting worried about the effect it is having on his health.

He added: "But then I got to a point where I thought I'm going to have a heart attack every time I did it."

Foo Fighters seventh album 'Wasting Light' is out now.
