Dave Grohl performs Everlong for New York City nurse on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Dave Grohl delivered a surprise acoustic performance of the Foo Fighters’ 1997 classic, “Everlong”, from isolation for a New York City nurse on the April 27 episode of ABC-TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The late night host – who has been saluting frontline workers with a “Healthcare Hero Of The Week” segment – connected with TJ Riley, an emergency and trauma nurse from Jacobi Medical Center in The Bronx, to thank him for his hard work and dedication during the pandemic.

After learning Riley was a big Foo Fighters fan, Kimmel brought Grohl into the video mix, which surprised the COVID-19 survivor.

“I feel like I’m having a coronavirus dream...this is crazy,” joked Riley as Grohl performed the fan favorite from the band’s second album, “The Colour And The Shape.”

Kimmel’s team are giving Riley a $10,000 gift card from Life Is Good apparel and are sending gift packages from the company to every nurse in his department.

This past week, Grohl and Taylor Hawkins joined an all-star lineup of UK artists for a new version of the 2002 Foo Fighters classic, “Times Like These”, in support of the global effort to stay safe and stay home during the Coronavirus crisis.
