The Foo Fighters' wives had a huge crush on Justin Timberlake and tried to visit him in the studio.

See them talk about the Timberlake effect in our video above.
Speaking to Radio X’s Chris Moyles about his chance meeting with the star at EastWest Studios in Hollywood, Grohl recalled: “He said, 'Man I’d love to sing on the record'".
Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins had plenty of praise for the Suit & Tie star, saying: “There’s a reason that dude’s still around. To break out from that… boy band dude makes it out into a serious career, that’s like a drummer becoming a lead singer. And Dave and him together, those guys have similar personalities…”
