Dave Grohl was "beaten-up" by a goose.
The Foo Fighters star was playing hockey on a frozen lake with his friends as a child when their puck strayed towards the bird which lashed out at the youngster, kicking him "mercilessly" with its foot.
The 45-year-old rocker shared the "terrible" ordeal, as he spoke to Absolute Radio's Christian O'Connell this morning, saying: "I've been hit like, I've had my run-ins with animals, I got beat up by a goose one time on a frozen lake.
"I was playing hockey on a frozen lake and my puck sort of went over towards this goose and gooselings or whatever and I walked over to get my puck and all my friends were watching me, I was a kid, and this goose came up and just kicked me, just like beat me mercilessly. I couldn't get up because I was on ice, it was terrible."
The 'My Hero' hitmaker also confessed to an unfortunate nickname as a child after his friends discovered his resemblance to the red-haired, drum-playing Muppet, Animal.
Although Dave insists he was more than happy to be compared to the puppet character.
When asked to choose his favourite Disney Muppet, Dave said: " Animal, well I mean come on.
"He's a drummer like you know. Because when I was a kid playing drums everyone was like, "Oh you look like Animal from the Muppets". I said "Thank you".
