We’ve all had those dreams of stardom where we’re superstars, slamming on our guitars up on stage while all of those who had ever doubted us look up in amazement, their mouths full of humble pie. However, sadly none of us are Dave Grohl, who recently revealed that he managed to have that exact moment at a Foo Fighters show.

Dave Grohl recently sat down for a lengthy chat with British magazine GQ (via Celebretainment), where he revealed a number of things, including his thoughts on Trump, and just how listening to Nirvana makes him feel these days.

However, it was an amusing anecdote of a previous relationship that has gotten some readers talking, with Grohl’s story of ‘revenge’ sounding like something that many could only dream of.

“I get very lucid dreams, have done my entire life,” Grohl began. “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,” he continues. “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?'”

“The funny thing is that actually happened.”

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

At this point, with all the wild stuff that’s happened in Dave Grohl’s life, we’re beginning to think he’s less of a human and some sort of fictional character who is designed to have the most perfect life possible. It’s the only explanation.
