Dave Grohl Invites Disabled Child Onstage During Foo Fighters’ St. Paul, MN Show

During Foo Fighters’ October 18 show at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN, Dave Grohl invited a young disabled fan onstage. The kid, whose name is Owen, unfortunately suffers from blindness, autism, Crohn’s disease, and other developmental disabilities. Owen’s mother Stacy commented via Consequence Of Sound’s Facebook page:

“Hello! Thank you for sharing this. I am Owen’s mom. Owen is in fact blind, he also has Autism, Crohn’s Disease and developmental disabilities. Owen loves concerts so much. He was definitely not tired, he likes to be held up front at most shows and we take turns [holding him] up so he can dance. Dave Grohl and all of the crew were incredibly kind to our family. We have taken Owen to close to 100 shows. It’s so fun and he brings out the best in so many people. Owen has a pretty huge story and has been through so much in his life already, we are just trying to give him the best life we can.”

Dave Grohl Says Foo Fighters Have Been Approached About Performing At The Super Bowl

With Maroon 5 expected to perform during halftime at Super Bowl LIII, rock fans have been left disappointed once again. However, during an interview with KROQ, Dave Grohl revealed that Foo Fighters were actually approached about performing at the event in the past.

Grohl said the following:

“I’ve had multiple conversations over the years with them where they say, ‘We want to have a rock and roll band. Do you think you could do it? Do you think you could do a stadium?’ I was, like, ‘Yeah man, we do it all the time.’ We’re, like, ‘Oh my God, I think we’re gonna do the Super Bowl!’ And then it’ll be, like, Madonna or Katy Perry or somebody like that.”

He continued:

“I actually got really hammered at this party in France once, and got to meet the dude that does the Super Bowl thing, and I was, like, ‘I don’t even want to do the Super Bowl! I used to want to do it. Now I don’t want to do it anymore!'”

Taylor Hawkins also chimed in: “Not to be negative on Maroon 5, but [the Super Bowl] always seems to be the final chapter in your career,” while Grohl added: “We’re just trying to come up with excuses why we haven’t done it.”
