Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but Dave Grohl is a good dude. He gifted a $2,000 guitar to a 10-year-old Metallica fan, played second fiddle to his daughter at a charity event, and reunited motherf*ckin Nirvana during Foo Fighters’ Cal Jam Fest… and all that happened within the last month. Well, good guy Grohl was at it again during Foo Fighters’ gig in St. Paul, Minnesota on Thursday.
Per Christy Taylor of Go 96.3 in Minneapolis, Grohl invited a blind child to the stage after noticing him in the audience. The child and his parents were escorted to the side of the stage, where they watched the remainder of the concert. At one point, Grohl even brought his guitar over to the child so that he could touch it.
Update: The child is named Owen and his mother, Stacey, provided some more details of their experience on our Facebook page.
For what it's worth- I'm fairly certain people don't have the facts right in this @foofighters story. I was at the show in St. Paul. The kid had a red & white cane & had to be carried on stage. It seemed like he was blind, which is why Dave brought his guitar over to him to touch https://t.co/9cG3LADzWW
