Watch Dave Grohl keep his cool during this adorably awkward encounter with Slayer in 1998

“My throat was closed. My stomach dropped. My asshole turned into a Star Wars trash compactor. An audible ‘gulp’ and whimper were the only sounds I could produce.”

In his hellishly entertaining blog, Dave Grohl used these words to describe his reaction when he learned that his band, Foo Fighters, would be leading Ozzy at their one and only Ozzfest performance. It was 1998 and Ozzfest, then in its third year, made its UK debut at Milton Keynes Bowl. The lineup uncorked a legion of metal heavyweights including Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Soulfly, Slayer, Fear Factory, Coal Chamber, Entombed and Neurosis.
