Dave Grohl Feeds Homeless Ahead of California Snow Storm

Dave Grohl is once again proving why he is just as worthy of attention off the stage as he is on.

Per TMZ, the Foo Fighter’s frontman showed up at Hope The Mission in Los Angeles earlier this week with a massive meat smoker to cook for those in need for a whopping 16 hours. The gesture came as major snow storms were threatening to hit Los Angeles.

Reportedly, all of the expense was covered by Grohl. Around 450 guests were served his barbecue feast.

The mission’s CEO Rowan Vansleve posted a video taken with Grohl. “And in the middle of our 350 mile run to end homelessness, we got the coolest video ever from Dave Grohl, of the Foo Fighters,” Vansleve captioned the video. “Not only did I wish us luck, but he cooked for hundreds of people who live in our shelters in the middle of one of the worst storms. Nothing but love and respect for Dave.”

The Foos’ “My Hero” played in the background of the video while Grohl spoke about being “all in” to the mission. Check out the clip, below.

The Foos recently announced a trio of U.S. headlining shows for later this year. The group was already slated for a run of summer festival appearances including Boston Calling, Sonic Temple, Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park and Bonnaroo.

The newly announced shows see the band make stops in New Hampshire, Arkansas, and Alabama. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. local time this Friday (March 3). Find ticket information, HERE.

The group’s impending dates will be their first full shows since the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins last March. They have yet to announce who will be behind the kit at the upcoming shows.

The Foos recently marked what would have been Hawkins’ 51st birthday with a special tribute post that read, “Miss you so much.”
