Foo Fighter’s Dave Grohl is a Nice Guy

From all accounts, Dave Grohl, front man for the rock band the Foo Fighters is a super nice guy. And this story about him on The Age just confirms what a good guy he is.

Australian man Ken Powell may be the biggest Foo Fighters fan in the country. Some know Ken as Ken The Foo Fighter because of his love and loyalty to the group. Ken, who is 56-years-old, has also been fighting melanoma for the past 14 years. Unfortunately Ken, who has to use a wheelchair, is dying from the cancer. His dream before he goes has been to meet the Foo Fighters and he almost achieved it.

Despite his ailing health, Ken traveled around Australia to see every show the Foo Fighters performed in the country. Foo Fighters fan Brian Torchin has learned that Ken had tickets for a special meet-and-greet with the band in Perth, however it was cancelled due to Dave Grohl getting food poisoning. Ken was disappointed but still excited that he got to see his idols perform so many times.

A flight attendant who knew of Ken’s story also happened to be on the same flight as Grohl and the group recently. She approached him to tell him about Ken. Grohl reached out to him and offered the chance to see and meet them in Los Angeles. Ken has set up a GoFundMe page to help him fund his travels to fulfill his dream.
