The holidays bring up a lot of memories for people. For Dave Grohl, that includes reminiscing about tripping on shrooms.

In a new interview, Grohl recalled the time he spent Christmas high on mushrooms-as a 15-year-old in a house full of teachers.

Grohl said his mother and other teachers were spending the holiday at his house when he decided to try mushrooms a friend had given him. One teacher asked Grohl if he was using cocaine after noticing him acting strangely.

Grohl said that once everyone had left the party, he stayed up and attempted-and failed-to learn how to play a Led Zeppelin song.

As a kid, did you ever do anything “wrong” while in a house full of adults? What were the holidays like for you growing up?
