Happy 47th Birthday, Dave!

Jan 14

Birthday BoyI’m not gonna lie…this was a tough book to put together…was it worth it? Well of COURSE it was…it’s Dave…and it’s his birthday…and we all want to hug him and thank him for an incredible year.  Dude broke his leg and kept going.  I stubbed my toe last night and thought ‘so this is how it ends…’

I don’t want to spend too much time writing out a bunch of stuff here, because I know that you want to get to the book, but I do want to thank the 200+ people from all over the world that took time to create a birthday wish for Dave. It’s very thoughtful of you. I certainly appreciate it & I’m sure that Dave does too. It’s been a tough couple of weeks in the world of music…let’s make today a very HAPPY birthday for Dave.  At any time today when you use Twitter make sure to add  ‘#HappyBirthdayDaveGrohl’ when you ‘tweet’ and let’s get that trending world-wide.

I do want to mention that the book is completely visual this year. I required everyone that contributed to do so by using some sort of photo or art design etc..  I know that in some cases it was a pain in the ass for you computer-challenged folks, but I think when you see the book, you’ll understand what I was going for.

I like to think that I have Dave’s birthday cornered – and just when you get comfortable and think ‘yeah, NO ONE can top this’, some students in Ethiopia bust out singing ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ for Dave’s birthday and it’s all over the Internet and that’s all she wrote…. (make sure you watch the end!) So I will gladly celebrate their video… Ethiopia!!!!

 

So here we go… Dave’s Birthday Book for January 14, 2016.  Happy Birthday, sweet Dave.  You are loved beyond measure.  Have an amazing day!

Dave’s Eulogy to Lemmy

What can you say? It’s heartbreaking, that’s for sure. I spent Christmas with my mom & brother and my brother is probably the biggest fan of Lemmy (next to Dave).  We had just been talking about him when the Internet blew up with the news about his passing. Like a lot of people my age, […]

Dave on The Muppets

Just a few screen caps that I caught. Cute episode.  The Muppets are always great.  I like how they’ve kind of become more of an adult show now (even though it’s still great for kids!).  I think I spotted ‘Piggy’ eyeing Dave a little bit.  Hey, we’ve all been there, Piggy.  Also, don’t forget about […]
