Sometimes it’s the unexpected moments that steal the spotlight. Case in point: the recent Instagram post from renowned drummer Josh Freese, chronicling a whimsical night out with the legendary Pat Smear. As these seasoned rockers found themselves in Australia, fresh off a colossal Foo Fighters performance, they decided to trade in the adrenaline for a night of culinary exploration and unexpected artistic endeavors.
Josh Freese sets the stage, sharing a glimpse into their post-gig revelry. After what could arguably be tagged as one of the biggest Foo Fighters shows in Australia, the duo decided to indulge in a well-deserved date night. The premise? To go “ALL OUT,” savoring the finest experiences their surroundings had to offer.
The culinary escapade took an amusing turn when Pat Smear, a rock stalwart, expressed a hankering for pasta. However, the establishment, perhaps unaccustomed to rock royalty dining in their midst, could only muster a kids’ menu pasta option. Unfazed, Freese and Smear embraced the moment, requesting crayons to color away the wait. The result? A delightful diversion into the childlike joys of coloring, prompting Freese to confess to “kids menu/crayon envy.”
The duo’s culinary caper continued as they playfully inquired about the least popular steak on the menu, paying homage to the classic film “Goodfellas.” Freese, with a nod to the cinematic masterpiece, ordered his steak medium and threw in an “ehhh, an aristocrat!” The night unfolded with a charming blend of rock ‘n’ roll swagger and cinematic nostalgia.
Amidst the laughter and lighthearted banter, the culinary offerings took center stage – a cute little steak for Freese and an equally endearing kids’ pasta for Smear. The juxtaposition of rock icons reveling in their gourmet choices, coupled with the whimsy of crayon coloring, created a tapestry of unforgettable moments.
As their Instagram-worthy escapade circulates through the music community, fans are left with a newfound appreciation for the unexpected and a yearning to embrace the lighter side of the rock ‘n’ roll spectrum. Cheers to the night of crayon artistry, culinary quirks, and the enduring camaraderie of two icons who know how to trade the stage for an evening of culinary and creative delights.
