So here we go again, another high profile case where coffee gets the blame because someone rocked the casbaa little too hard. Dave Grohl, whose music I dig overall was , at one point hospitalized with chest pains, he’s out and he’s ok. This isn’t TMZ so you won’t get pithy comments and gratuitous photos of the star with a cup of coffee. You will however get a bit of common sense.

In  his own words Dave said

That was a year ago, the ‘Fresh Pots’ video. We were in the studio making a record and I was drinking a lot of coffee. At one point I was doing Vultures stuff at night, Foo Fighters stuff during the day and I had a newborn at home and I was sleeping maybe two or three hours a night on an air mattress in a guest bedroom. And yeah, I had too much coffee and I started having chest pains, so I went to the hospital and they told me to stop drinking so much coffee.”

I love to learn that  he’s a fan of the Bean but just perhaps it wasn’t just the coffee that did him in but the 1 – 2 hours a sleep a night. Your body needs sleep to replenish itself. As a sleep mutant myself i know that not everyone functions on the same amount of sleep, but the body was not designer nor did it evolve to working crazy long hours on multiple  projects  and demanding aspects of life. The coffee was merely the enabler in this case, its like blaming the bartender for being an alcoholic, in my opinion.Its  funny  how many people have tried to point to this as an example of  coffee = bad.

Your mileage may vary.
