Dave Grohl has dug out a classic from the Foo Fighters archive during his latest, remote appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The Foo Fighters legend cracked off an acoustic guitar-driven performance of the band’s beloved 1997 hit ‘Everlong’.

The performance was dedicated to TJ Riley, a New York emergency trauma nurse working tirelessly at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx. Riley — who is a dedicated Fooeys fan —  was interviewed on the show. The performance was part of Kimmel’s #HealthCareHero series, and saw The Life Is Good organisation provide every nurse in Riley’s department with $10,000 and a gift package. It’s really heartwarming stuff. Check out the performance below.

This isn’t the first instance a Foo Fighters song has been used to raise funds and show solidarity to those on the coronavirus frontline. Last week, a slew of the biggest and brightest names in music joined forces on a self-isolation cover of Fooeys’ classic ‘Time Like These‘. The performance was part of the BBC Radio 1 Stay Home Live Lounge.

Proceeds from the cover will benefit BBC’s Children in Need, Comic Relief and the World Health Organization’s COVID-19-Solidarity Response Fund.

The performance saw appearances by Dave Grohl, Chris Martin, Dua Lipa, Taylor Hawkins, 5 Seconds of Summer, Rag’n’Bone man, Biffy Clyro, Sam Fender, Rita Ora and more. You can check it out here.
