NEWSFLASH: Dave Grohl wasn’t always a rock legend. In the days pre-Nirvana and pre-Foo Fighters, he was just a kid who admired other musicians, looking up to them in admiration. Reflecting on the days when he did what people now do to him, he shared a postcard he wrote to Minor Threat frontman Ian Mackaye when he was 14.
He asked his hero for advice, leaving his phone number and times to call him. So cute.
Check out little Dave’s tweet:
Look what my hero Ian Mackaye (Minor Threat/Fugazi) just found: a letter I wrote to him when I was 14! Haha! pic.twitter.com/Ak8gxZz5m6
