Long before he was rocking out in bands like the Foo Fighters and Nirvana, Dave Grohl was just like us, writing fan mail to his idols.
In this case, his idol was none other than Ian MacKaye, the voice behind the epic punk/rock bands ‘Minor Threat’ and ‘Fugazi’.
Ian dug up a fan letter he received from a 14 year old Dave Grohl, where the teen asks Mackaye to give him some “numbers of people to get in touch with”.
It’s clear the kid had ambition, because who else was trying to network in high school?
The best past of the letter?
It’s probably where Grohl specified the time of day MacKaye could contact him (between the hours of 3 and 10 p.m., please).
If you’re wondering why MacKaye would still hold on to a fan letter from years ago, it’s probably because, like Grohl, he has a history of being awesome.
