From Earnhardt to Foo

Got this in Infobeat as well. I’ve kinda grown to like Foo’s tunes since I first heard ‘Learn to Fly’. I bought the CD soon after and must say, it get’s a lot of play…

Grohl gets guitar from Earnhardt Jr.
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Singer Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters was happy with the gift of a new guitar, but the timing made it bittersweet. The Gibson guitar came from stock car racer Dale Earnhardt Jr., who’s a big rock music fan. “Two days after I got the guitar I heard that his father had died,” Grohl told reporters last week. Earnhardt’s dad, one of NASCAR’s biggest stars, was killed in a crash at the Daytona 500. “It’s an amazing guitar,” Grohl said. “We’re doing a couple more shows in the next month and I plan on using it just to let him know that I’m rockin’ it for him.”
