Watch Dave Grohl And Brandi Carlile Go Busking Together In Seattle
Sometimes, even multi-platinum Grammy-winning rock musicians need change for the laundromat. And what better way to get it than playing an impromptu street performance for a few passerby? That, we assume, is why Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl took to the streets of Seattle with Grammy-winning folk rock artist Brandi Carlile to do a little busking.
