Dave Grohl loves Still Game, claims Navid


FOO Fighters legend Dave Grohl is a fan of Still Game – according to one of the show’s leading characters.

Sanjeev Kohli, who plays shopkeeper Navid, revealed there’s a rumour circulating about the former Nirvana drummer’s love of the show.

Fans suggested Grohl was introduced to the comedy show because the roadie in charge of looking after his guitars is from Scotland.

Posting on Twitter last night, the 44-year-old wrote: “There’s a rumour going around that Dave Grohl is a fan of Still Game. Really hope this is true.”

One of Kohli’s fans, Barry Burns, added more fuel to the rumour saying: “His guitar tech is from Giffnock so…”

Dozens of fans took to the post to tag the rockband into the conversation and ask if the rumour was true.
