Dave Grohl Comes To The Aid Of Teenage Garage Band

(New Rock Times) The nicest man in rock has done it again after Dave Grohl leapt to the defence of a fledgling metal band from Cornwall. The Foo Fighters mainman has waded into a row between The Black Leaves of Envy and Conrnwall Council who had ordered the band to quit plasticizing following noise complaints from neighbors.

But the teenage metallers have found the most unlikely of allies in Grohl who has penned a letter to the authority after the band got in touch with him. Asking the council to 'reconsider the restrictions,' Grohl recounted his own youth spent developing his musical craft in a garage.

In his open letter, which he shared with his band's more than 12 million followers, he wrote: "Music is not only a healthy pastime, it is a wonderful, creative outlet for kids, and fosters a sense of community necessary to the emotional and social development of any child."

The rock hero who has amassed record sales in excess of 100 million between his bands expressed his belief that it is "crucial that children have a place to explore their creativity and establish a sense of self through song" and that "the preservation of such is paramount to the future of art and music."
