Dave Chapelle joins Foo Fighters on stage for Radiohead’s rendition of “Creep” at Madison Square Garden, making him second best Dave in the group.
Once upon a time, the only Dave associated with the Foo Fighters was Dave Grohl, that big-mouthed, wild-haired musician we all know and love. But over the weekend, the rock band teamed up with another celebrity named Dave – Dave Chapel, This is.
It all happened at Madison Square Garden in that venue’s first full-capacity event since the start of the pandemic. Grohl invited the comedian, who was in town for a new documentary, to take the lead voice on a rendition of Radiohead‘s “Creep”.
Fans overwhelmingly approved of this unexpected collaboration.
“Dave Chappelle is currently singing Radiohead’s Creep at the Foo Fighters show at Madison Square Garden and while the pandemic may not be completely over, it has certainly gotten a lot stranger,” one tweeted.
“Chappelle has transcended comedy to the goat level and can now do whatever he wants,” said another.
“You have two of the best Daves in the universe teaming up for Creep,” said a third.
There were one or two detractors, of course. (Chapel was, admittedly, a little wrong.)
“Aaaa and he slaughtered that song,” tweeted one of those poopers. “He shouldn’t even be singing happy birthday.” Good heaven.”
OK, so don’t quit your job, Chapelle. You are not rock-star material (yet). Still, isn’t it refreshing that celebrities can crash into each other and we can all witness the awkwardness together? It’s so much better that yet we kill time during quarantine.
