Dave Grohl Shares Letter He Wrote to Ian MacKaye at Age 14

Image Courtesy of ABCGrowing up just outside of Washington, D.C., a teenaged Dave Grohl was a big fan of the D.C. punk scene. Apparently, that included writing letters to his hardcore heroes, including Minor Threat and Fugazi's Ian MacKaye. As it turns out, MacKaye recently found a letter that a 14-year-old Grohl wrote to him, which Grohl has now shared on Twitter.

"Good thrash so I was wondering if you could give me some numbers or people to get in touch with," the letter reads. "It would help. Thanx."

The future Foo Fighters frontman then signs his name "David Grohl" and provides a number for MacKaye to call. Grohl also adds that the best time to call him would be between 3 and 10 p.m., which probably isn't true anymore.

Aside from the letter, Grohl's fondness for MacKaye has been well documented. Grohl interviewed MacKaye for the Washington, D.C. episode of Foo Fighters' Sonic Highways HBO documentary series.

This summer, Foo Fighters will start their North American tour in Washington, D.C. with a Fourth of July blowout. The tour will conclude October 17 in Anaheim, California.
