Dave Grohl Gets Honored by His Hometown
The Foo’s main-man and all around cool dude Dave Grohl, was recently honored by his hometown of Warren, Ohio. The city constructed a giant drumstick in his honor. According to Loudwire Grohl thanked the city by taking out a full-page ad in a newspaper. The ad featured Grohl wearing a “Made In Warren” t-shirt and a huge smile. The message read,
To the wonderful city of Warren, from the bottom of my heart I’d like to thank you all so much . . . For the childhood memories. For my family. For my very own alley. For the world’s largest drumsticks! And for all of your support . . . But most of all for being such a great community. One that makes me proud to say . . . I am from Warren, Ohio!
The drumsticks the city used each weight 900 pounds and are made of giant poplar logs. They were unveiled at the Warren Amphitheater during a ceremony on Saturday night (July 7th), with the mayor reading the absent Grohl’s message to the audience. The drumsticks are thought to be the largest in the world and will call the Warren Amphitheater home until the final show of the season in September. At that point they will be moved to David Grohl Alley, the downtown street renamed after the artist in 2009.
