FOO FIGHTERS: Grohl Enhances Experience for Young Blind Fan


Dave Grohl has gone out of his way to involve young fans during Foo Fighters' Concrete and Gold tour, so far bringing up an eight-year-old drummer and a 10-year-old guitarist to play with the band. Last week in St. Paul, Minnesota, Grohl literally reached out to a blind child in the crowd. 

Spotting the kid, whose name is Owen, in his wheelchair on the floor in front of the stage, Grohl had him brought up onto the side of the stage for the rest of the show and at one point went over to Owen and held out his guitar to him so he could touch it.

Owen's mom, Stacy Anderson, later wrote of Facebook, "Owen is in fact blind, he also has Autism, Crohn’s Disease and developmental disabilities. Owen loves concerts so much... He likes to be held up front at most shows and we take turns holding him up so he can dance. Dave Grohl and all of the crew were incredibly kind to our family."

Good guy Grohl does it again.
