Did you catch Dave Grohl guest-hosting ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Halloween night? It was a goody.
Grohl dressed as David Letterman for the occasion, complete with glasses, letterman (get it?) jacket and a long white beard that he chided Letterman for growing in his retirement. Grohl interviewed actress Kristin Bell, who was dressed as Tom Sellick‘s “Magnum P.I.” character and took the drum kit with Cleo & the Cletones as Bell sang a mashup of “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” from Frozen and Metallica‘s “Enter Sandman.”
Grohl also interviewed Alice Cooper, who joined Foo Fighters for a rendition of “The Ballad Of Dwight Fry;” At the end of the song Cooper was mock beheaded in a guillotine, but instead of a fake Cooper head the executioners pulled out a dummy head of Grohl.
Kimmel is taking the week off to prepare for his infant son William’s heart surgery next week.
