Watch Dave Grohl Surprise An Emergency Trauma Nurse With Performance Of Everlong
Following on from last week’s all-star cover of Foo Fighters’ Times Like These, Dave Grohl is continuing to lift everyone’s spirits amid the coronavirus pandemic, with his latest act of kindness involving surprising a New York emergency trauma nurse on the new episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
Nurse TJ Riley appeared on the latest (remote) episode of the show as part of Jimmy’s #HealthCareHero segment, with TJ discussing his work on the frontline at the Jacobi Medical Center in The Bronx.

To thank him for his dedication, his favourite singer Dave popped up on the video call to serenade him with an acoustic rendition of Foos’ 1997 smash single Everlong. “I just happen to have a guitar in my lap,” he jokes. “Maybe I’ll play a little song…”
On top of the beautiful performance, TJ was also thanked with $10,000 and gift packages for every nurse in his department, courtesy of Life Is Good. Amazing work all round, people.
