Happy 45th Birthday to Dave!!!

Jan 14

UhOh

You know what day it is.  Yeah you do. It’s better than Christmas, Halloween & the 4th of July (sorry  England) all wrapped up together.  It’s….

 

DAVE’S 45TH BIRTHDAY!!

 It’s so exciting! Remember that one time Dave had a birthday party at Medieval Times and then suddenly the idea of ‘Them Crooked Vultures’ was formed?  I mean, think about it…what’s going on right now?! What amazing super groups are being formed AS WE SPEAK?  The possibilities are endless!

Ok, Ok.. we’ll get to the birthday book, but first I want to thank a few people for helping me out with some design for the book.  Billy Chase, Dori Frank & Marco Fantin of Foo Fighters Italian Fan Club.  You all stepped up and helped and I really appreciate it more than you’ll ever know. We’ll all get together some day and dinner is on me.

There are a few things I want to mention about this Birthday Book for Dave. 

  1.   Everyone that submitted a birthday greeting expects a Foo Fighters album and tour THIS year. No exceptions. So you might want to get busy on that, Dave.
  2.   ‘Fresh Pots’ still lives on in infamy.  You may have escaped Mentos being thrown at you in concert, Dave, but you will NEVER live down Fresh Pots.  These are facts.
  3.  And finally – everyone of us here love and admire you, Dave.  The world is simply a better place because of you.  You do so much for us that we’re happy to wish you a birthday full of fun, love, and yes, Fresh Pots. (See?)


The book includes Videos this year.  Such creative and touching videos – it really makes the book a little extra special.  I hope in the years to come that there will be more videos.  

Finally, thank you, everyone who took the time to sit down and design, write, or record your greeting.  You, in fact, ROCK.  I just want to say that we’ve been doing this for maybe 6 or 7 yrs now, and I noticed that someone has taken the idea and Simon LeBon of Duran Duran has an online birthday book now.  Hey, I’m a Duranie just as much as the other teenagers from the 80s, but uh… we were first.  And Simon never made a Hot Buns video.

We’re also going to try to get this trending world-wide on Twitter:  #HappyBirthdayDaveGrohl – we’ve done it before.  Tweet that along with all of your tweets today!

So here you go, nerds.  Your 2014 Birthday Book for Dave.  Enjoy.  See you next year!

Happy 43rd Birthday, Dave!!

Jan 14

So you know what that means…. time for our annual Birthday Book!

This year was the biggest year yet for the birthday book, so thank you to everyone that contributed.  You kept me quite busy, but it’s always so much fun to see what you create for Dave each year. Extra thanks to Elle in Germany for the graphics for the book and to Stella & Karina in Brazil for translating!  I originally said out loud that it would be cool to get 300 entries… and from the ‘careful what you wish for’ department we ended up just shy of 400.  That’s INSANE. Head’s up: One entry has a link to a YouTube birthday message & another has a link to a ‘High School’ Year Book….don’t miss them!

Don’t forget – we’re going for World-Wide Trending of #HappyBirthdayDaveGrohl so insert that tag into every tweet you write. It’s already trending in Brazil & the UK.

So here’s to 43 awesome years & many, many more.  Happy Birthday, sweet Dave. You are loved.  Hell, I suggest you take the day off just to read all of these!

Enjoy! (Click the graphic below to read the Birthday Book)

Happy Birthday, Dave!!

I’m not going to lie….this particular birthday book kicked my ass this year, but it was well worth it!

Thanks(as always)to my good friend Kevin for helping me with the photoshop pictures for my entry.

Thanks to my sister Liz who came up with the Birthday Book “theme” this year on a trip to Maine where I somewhat panicked over what I was going to do.

Extra special thanks to my friend Elle over there in Germany who designed the backgrounds and all of the birthday book announcements etc. that you’ve seen around the site. She’s so talented and always so willing to help me out at a moment’s notice. I appreciate everything that you do for me and the website, Elle.

And thanks to all of the fans that helped contribute to the birthday book! It’s always so much fun to check my e mail and see the new designs and wishes and letters sent in for Dave.

Since we all know that Dave absolutely LOVES Twitter – we should make #HappyBirthdayDaveGrohl a trending topic today. Get to it you Twits.

So here it is: Our annual Birthday Book for Dave’s birthday. Enjoy, everyone… and Happy Birthday, Dave. You are loved, admired, adored and mean so much to so many. Thank you for the music.

Happy Birthday, DAVE!!!!

Another year, another birthday book! Hard to believe it’s January again, but this time we’re celebrating Dave’s Big 4-0!!

I want to thank everyone who contributed and took the time to write down or create a birthday wish to Dave. This has always been about giving everyone a chance to tell Dave happy birthday in their own special way. It amazes me year after year the unique and special entries that land in my e mail every day.

Special thanks to all those who offered up extra help to me when I stressed out on the FF board about it … I appreciate all of the offers. I will seek special therapy soon. Something somewhere is not right! ;-p

As always, thanks to my friend Kevin who ended up creating my entry for me (Just the graphics part. The rest is ME!) And thanks so much to my friend Elle in Germany (EllyPirelly on the FF board) for creating the above graphic, the banners and the frames for the letters to Dave. Beautiful work as always!

So without further ado, Happy Birthday, Dave – from your fans and from me. And I think I speak for everyone when I say don’t be gone from us for too long. We’re patiently waiting for new music!
