Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was a guest on Thursday night’s edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he gave the host a most unsettling gift: Grohl’s own severed head.
The gruesome artifact was from a Halloween edition of Kimmel that Grohl guest hosted last year, on which Grohl had his head chopped off by Alice Cooper as part of a skit. Grohl thanked Kimmel for letting him host the show by giving him the head as a present.
Grohl revealed that after Alice beheaded him on the show, he took the prop head home, saying, “I scared my kids with it, I scared the housekeeper with it, and it got to a point where I was like, ‘I need to get this thing out of my house.'”
After receiving the grisly keepsake, Kimmel quipped, “I think I’m going to give this to my mom.”
While on the show, Grohl also spoke about the forthcoming mini-documentary Play, in which he plays a 23-minute song on seven different instruments. He also recalled jamming with Prince back in 2011 on Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” when the late singer played a residency at the Forum in Los Angeles.
