Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is looking forward to Christmas Day (25DEC05) because he will be surrounded by his two favourite things - family and food.

The BEST OF YOU hitmaker and former Nirvana drummer loves having his extended family over because it means a greater choice of dishes to fill up on.

He says, "I'll be in Los Angeles with my mother and father and my sister and her stepfather and her stepfather's brother and lots of aunts and uncles.

"We're just going to eat.

"The wife cooks, but everyone brings a little something to the table.

"My wife and her family are into Californian cuisine, but my mom brings sweet potatoes and marshmallows and candied yams and all that stuff."
