Taylor Swift stepped in after Dave Grohl was put in an awkward situation with Paul McCartney.
Thanks to Dave Grohl, fans got a snippet of what goes on behind the scenes at celebrity parties. As expected, the story was filled with twists and turns, involving Taylor Swift and the legend of The Beatles, Paul McCartney.
We’ll take a look back at the story reveal alongside James Corden. Grohl had a blast at the party, but was put on the spot during a certain moment. We’re going to reveal how Taylor Swift saved the day, and how the fans reacted to the iconic story.
Let’s take a closer look.
Taylor Swift Stepped In To Sing A Song At Paul McCartney’s Party After Dave Grohl Was Unsure About Playing The Piano
Speaking alongside James Corden, Dave Grohl made quite the reveal about a certain party. Fans had a blast with the story, as Grohl gave the details about his experience at Paul McCartney’s party. As expected, it was an A-list guest list featuring the likes of Taylor Swift as well.
Grohl promised himself that he’d only stay until 10 PM, given that he had to drive his kids to the bus stop the next day. However, things took a turn once the party started. Things were getting exciting at 10 PM, so Grohl decided to stick around.
Things did take a bit of a turn when Grohl was asked to play the piano, or perform something. Grohl was very nervous given that he had one too many drinks. The artist recalls the experience, “He started playing this song and he’s blowing everyone’s mind. A new Paul McCartney song – weird! He finishes, and everyone looks at me, and they’re like, ‘Go on, Dave, play a song!’
“I’m like, ‘I don’t know how to play piano.’ I look around and all the guitars are left-handed. I’m screwed.” He added: “I’d maybe smoked a little pot – so I was already ‘challenged.’”
Thankfully, Taylor Swift completely saved Dave Grohl, asking to play something herself. Hilariously, she played one of Grohl’s classics, but the artist just couldn’t piece it together, “It’s like one of those nightmares where you’re running backwards, always late,” he said. Then it struck him: “I know this song. What the hell is this? And she was playing Best Of You. As if I weren’t high enough – that blew me into outer space! Taylor Swift, Best Of You, Paul McCartney… I lost my mind.”
Without a doubt, that’s a moment Grohl won’t ever forget, and he’ll always be thankful for Swift sticking up for him and saving the day. The homage was a neat little bonus ultimately.

“What happened next will forever remain a blur. I don’t recall exactly how Paul and I were introduced, what was said, or how long we talked, but I do remember putting on my best ‘this is not the most incredible thing ever to happen to me’ face while trying to keep from making a fool of myself.”
A great moment for Grohl and one he won’t forget.
