Dave Grohl Honored By Hometown

Dave Grohl's hometown of Warren, Ohio has already named a street after him (Dave Grohl Alley) and now they're set to honor the head Foo Fighter once again. The Youngstown Vindicator reports a new Grohl tribute is set to be unveiled this weekend: 900-pound drumsticks created out of huge poplar logs. Joe O'Grady, a Warren policeman and President of the downtown promotional organization Main Street Warren, said the drumsticks will be shown to the public in between two acts of the River Rock at the Amp concert series at the downtown Warren Amphitheater this Saturday night. The unveiling will take place around 7:30 or 8 p.m. The drumsticks, thought to be the largest in the world, will remain at the amphitheater until the last concert in September and then will be moved to Dave Grohl Alley just south of Courthouse Square. Grohl was born in Warren but raised in Virginia. "Most of my family is from Niles and the Youngstown and the Warren area," he said, when he came to Warren to help dedicate the alley in 2009. The final touches made to the drumsticks in the last couple weeks were feathers etched into the drumsticks to look like the tattoos on Grohl's arms. Thanks for the report to HenneMusic.com.

    Lemmy looks the exact same because he IS ALREADY AGED. He's like cheese, once it's aged enough, the only thing that happens to it is it gets all moldy and fuzzy and has a weird taste... Kinda like lemmy's facial hair :/

    If Dave Grohl were to run for office, he'd also have to run for Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Vice President, ALL Senate and House seats, and Secretary of Foreign Affairs. And he'd ****ing do it.

    No, Lemmy is God. Dave Grohl is visibly ageing, whereas Lemmy is clearly exactly the same as he was in 1990.

    You've probably heard negative press on Lemmy, but have you heard one bad report on Grohl? Nope. Rock's/Metal's/Earth's greatest man.

    Wrong Lemmy is getting younger, but it takes the eyes of Chuck Norris to say it.

Because the only thing that looks the same about those two guys is that they have the same stupid facial expression in both pictures. Otherwise, he's aged horribly. FYI, that pic is circa 1990.
    Some folks take things far too seriously. Chill out man - go and watch some porn or smoke a doobie, or whatever it is that you do to relax and then come back refreshed and actually READ most of the comments to see that they're all a bit tongue in cheek.

    "You've probably heard negative press on Lemmy, but have you heard one bad report on Grohl? Nope. Rock's/Metal's/Earth's greatest man." Well he did go behind WIlliam Goldsmith's back and recorded the drums on The Colour and the Shape by himself, but he never kicked him out even though Will couldn't keep in time. Beyond that, he's awesome!

    Would love to see him honored in Northern Virginia too. I drive by the high school he dropped out of on a regular basis, and I think his mom is still a substitute teacher in the Fairfax County school system.
