14-Year-Old Dave Grohl’s Fan Letter to Ian Mackaye

When Dave Grohl was just a 14-year-old kid growing up in Springfield, Virginia, he was a huge fan of Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), who at the time was playing in the DC area band Minor Threat. Dave wrote a fan letter to him, asking him for some help or any contacts he can send over – likely to get his start in becoming one of the world’s biggest musicians, but hey, you gotta start somewhere.
