Default Dave "Letterman" Grohl guest-hosted Kimmel last night

Great Halloween makeup job. He did a good job hosting the talk show too. Then Alice Cooper came on and did a performance using the Foo Fighters as his backup band.

Amazing costume. Pretty disturbing to see Letterman and hear Dave, though

He did a great job.

So, were the rest of the Foos in Halloween costumes (dressed as what??), or was that just their regular Tuesday night getup?

The monologue and some of the bits were a little stale and the timing wasn't great. But that comes with practice.

But goddamn, if he isn't a great conversationalist. I think that's where he truly shines in this talk show world. He just really seems to connect with anyone he talks to.

I was thinking the same thing, but being that stand up and tv host isn't his day job, I thought he did a great job!
Guillermo's outfit--uuuggghh!

I loved how Guillermo pronounced Cher as chair

When Dave played drums for Kristen Bell was the really weird part, it was like seeing letterman play drums with all of Dave’s skill and mannerisms, almost disturbing.

Yep it was pretty carefully prepared - wearing a real Late Show jacket too - possibly Dave G's own perhaps.

Nate was noticeably MIA - everyone else was there. Did anyone else catch Pat's silver platform shoes?

Isn't that Nate standing next to Alice and Taylor in the picture?

Dave kissing his own severed head - as Letterman... it was all very very funny / bizarre - I totally loved it.

I honestly wondered at the start if the band might come out in Run beards and play Alice's song and have it morph into Alice supporting them on Run with "old" Dave Grohlsterman (copyright pending).

The Metallica morph was pretty cool too
