He definitely isn't a Pretender. If he was, I'd have to Learn To Fly, so that someday it wouldn't be so Everlong....... I'm a major dumbass. Anyways, Dave is awesome and he is even more awesome-erer for the true statement he made here.
After this statement God, Zeus and Buddha called down from the heavens and said "Son time to come home for dinner and band practice." Dave proceeded to excuse himself and rose to the abyss of light above while singing "Learn to Fly".
Also Nate Mendel was there...but I'm guessing not as many people know who he is..think of him as the Pikachu to Dave Grohl except much more powerful and twice as much sex appeal.
