Foo Fighters on Saturday Night Live & Birthday Book Details

Dec 17

Hopefully you had the opportunity on Saturday Night to catch the Christmas episode of Saturday Night Live on NBC.  If not, I have quite a few screen captures for you (see below after Birthday Book Information).

A few of you have written me about Birthday Book details and here are a few guidelines to follow when creating your entry:

  • **1** Put your name on it (Location is great too!)
  • **2** Keep is strictly to Dave. Any mentions of personal life/family etc. will not be included. Just think of how you would like to be greeted on your birthday.
  • **3** It’s nice to write just a note, but include your note on a photo that you took either with Dave or at a show or even a photo of yourself.
  • **4** Please try to ‘attach’ your note to the photo. When you don’t do this, that leaves it to me, and it’s a long process and unfortunately, my time is quite limited these days. If you leave that part to me, then I have the final say-so in the way that it’s presented.
  • **5** Try to keep the size to 800 x 600 / 600 x 800 or less.
  • **6** Please: jpg, .gif, .png only. Don’t create on pdf or Word/excel or paint documents and send that to me.
  • **7** Email me: for any other questions or to send your contribution in to me. Deadline for submitting birthday greetings is Jan. 12, 2018 at 6pm NYC time.

As promised:  Screen Captures from SNL:

Time for Dave’s 2018 Birthday Book!

Nov 27

Hi everyone,

Dave turns 49 (!!!!) on January 14, 2018. It’s time to get his annual Birthday Book together!

Please consider contributing this year. The online book (link) is sent to Dave every year and he gets to see your wishes that you created for him.
Here are a few links to past birthday books. Feel free to look them over and create your birthday wish and send it along to me to be included.

2017 Birthday Book

2016 Birthday Book

Please keep your contributions to either .jpg, .gif, .png (no Word, pdf, paint etc).  In years past, some have created videos – and you still can….you’ll just need to upload to YouTube and send the embedded link to me to include on the page.  You can also do a search here with the words ‘Birthday Book’ to bring up years worth of books made for Dave.  They can help inspire you.  Also, please try to keep your creations private until the Birthday Book goes “live” for everyone to see.

Please keep your content for the most part ‘Birthday’ related.  Contributions that discuss his private life, family, etc. will be turned away. You can either edit or not have them included.  Remember that it is his BIRTHDAY and think of how you like to be treated on your birthday and that’s a good guide to follow.

Once you have completed your entry, you can send them along to me at 

Also, if you have ANY questions, feel free to email me.  We’ve had the book for many, many years now and it always turns out so great. Dave really does read them so here’s your chance to wish him a Happy Birthday.

The deadline for entries will be Friday, January 12, 2018 at 6pm Eastern time (New York City time). 

Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with this year!

Thanks, everyone!

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!
