He’s renowned for being the nicest man in rock and roll, and Dave Grohl is certainly living up to his title at the minute.
In his latest act of loveliness, the Foo Fighters frontman invited a young blind boy and his family on stage with the band at a gig in Minnesota.
Grohl dedicated The Sky Is A Neighborhood, from the band’s last album Concrete And Gold, to the boy.
Consequence Of Sound reported that the boy’s name is Owen and posted details of a message from his mother, Stacey, who commented on the US music site’s Facebook page.
“Owen is in fact blind, he also has Autism, Crohn’s Disease and developmental disabilities,” the post said. “Owen loves concerts so much. He was definitely not tired, he likes to be held up front at most shows and we take turns holdiyhim (sic) up so he can dance.
“Dave Grohl and all of the crew were incredibly kind to our family.”
Earlier this month, Grohl invited a 10-year-old boy to cover a Metallica song on stage with the band at a gig in Missouri.
