Along with Jimmy Kimmel Live, Dave Grohl helped to honor a Bronx ER nurse with a song. An inmate performance of "Everlong." Its part of series recognizing front line health care workers.
“I feel like I’m having a coronavirus dream,” Riley said as Grohl laughed and picked up his guitar.
“I am so honored to be a part of this incredible recording and blown away by all the heart and soul these amazing artists have put into our song,” Grohl said in a statement. “I hope that it helps lift people’s spirits, and reminds them that we’ll all be back in one of those muddy fields again someday soon, singing our hearts out together.”
TJ Riley says trauma cases are down at Jacobi Medical Center amid the coronavirus crisis. While that's good, what isn't good, according to the nurse, 60% of his colleagues have contracted COVID-19 in their efforts to treat.
He was the first and had a fever for 12 days along with nausea and dizziness, "It was pretty crazy," Riley told Kimmel.
Riley, who admits he's a huge Dave Grohl fan, was also given $10,000 from Life Is Good apparel company and word that care packages would be sent his co-workers.
