Dave Grohl Explains Ian MacKaye Fan Letter
(Classic Rock) Dave Grohl has explained the story behind the recently revealed fan letter that he wrote to Ian MacKaye when he was 14. The note surfaced last week when the Foo Fighters mainman posted a picture of it.
Along with the photo, Grohl wrote, “Look what my hero Ian just found!” Now he’s told the NME that he was hoping to start a chain reaction that would wind up with his high school band Mission Impossible signing a deal with Dischord Records.
And Grohl adds: “I’m telling you, if the Foos could do a Dischord single, then we could break up – done deal.” The band continue a UK tour later this month in support of eighth album Sonic Highways.
