Who didn't have a childhood hero growing up?
Naturally, because he was the coolest kid alive, Dave Grohl's hero was the coolest dude ever, Ian MacKaye. As a founding member of both Minor Threat and Fugazi, as well as influential label Dischord Records, MacKaye is a major punk icon, but that doesn't mean he forgets his young fans.
In fact, for decades, MacKaye held onto a letter that little BB
Dave David Grohl wrote to him. After unearthing the lost treasure and sharing with Grohl, the Foo Fighters frontman posted a pic of the letter via Twitter.
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— Foo Fighters (@foofighters) May 28, 2015
At the time, fourteen-year-old Grohl was looking to find "some people to get in touch with," presumably for making musical connections. He also included his phone number, signature, and which hours were best to contact him (3- 10pm).
