Dave is a busy guy.
I can’t keep up! It’s a full time job trying to keep up with everything that Dave is doing these days. I would gladly give up my job to document his work, but then I need an income too so there goes my dream…. 🙂 Anyway, you might want to grab something to eat & drink as you settle in to read this update because I have quite a few things for you.
First of all, our friend Joe Lay was at the New York City / Sound City Players concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom on February 13th and took the following photos (and had a great time, I heard!). Thanks for sharing, Joe! Awesome photos!
One of my favorite pages here on the website has always been the ‘Dave with his fans‘ page. I know a lot of you have had the opportunity lately to meet up with Dave, so if you had your photo taken with him, send it to me and I’ll add it to the page. I have two new photos here from Sonia so I’ll add them to the page:
SPIN ‘magazine’ has a cover story on Dave and you can read it HERE (Mr. Grohl’s Cabinet of Wonder)
Is there anything this guy can’t do??

When I was out in Los Angeles for the premiere of Sound City, I had the awesome opportunity to meet so many people that I’ve talked to over the years online because of this website and Foo Fighters / Dave. I got to meet Nicole who wrote the following at ‘The Trend Tribe‘ and I wanted to share it with you as it was her experience of the evening, and there might be a photo of me as well in there somewhere along with world-famous Knoxy and Jill (from @ foofighters.com). Thanks, Nicole for sharing with us!
Also, Dave was on hand this evening at the BritAwards 2013 to present and collect the award for International Group for Black Keys at the 02 Arena on in London, England. Here are a few photos of the arrival and the presentation:
And is all of this wasn’t enough, “Foo Fighters to start work on new album this week, Dave Grohl confirms.”
Awesome. I hope somewhere in there though that Dave can take a break – only if he wants to though. I know how frustrating it can be when others think you do too much or you should slow down and you’re perfectly happy to just be doing what you’re doing. I wouldn’t blame him though for taking 5 minutes to himself.
So that’s all I have at the moment. Send in your photos and stories.. I’ll post them. And… on a little bit of a personal note – I just want to mention that I’ve been in Dallas since July and basically, I’ve had enough of it. My “old” job in Boston offered up the opportunity for me to come back and join them and I really loved that job so much at Boston Children’s Hospital, so I’m going back. I miss the east coast. I miss my sister. So in the next few weeks, I’m once again loading up my car and “shipping up to Boston” as they say. I should be at the hospital working on April 1. This is a good thing for me. I’m completely happy about it and very much looking forward to getting back to my old job and the wonderful people that I worked with… I’m lucky to have the opportunity again.
