Read the Letter Dave Grohl Wrote in Support of Young Musicians Practicing Without Noise Restrictions
Grohl continues to be a stand up guy.
Dave Grohl continues to prove that he’s a rocker with a heart of gold. On Monday, the musician penned a letter to Cornwall Council asking them to lift their current noise laws so that the local unsigned teenage metal band, Black Leaves of Envy, could practice their craft.
We bet you’re saying “awww” in your heads right now, which is fair, given that Grohl appealed to the council following the band asking Grohl for his support. It was a long shot, but he delivered.
“My name is Dave Grohl, and I’m writing on behalf of the local music group Black Leaves Of Envy,” he wrote, before explaining the importance of practicing. “For musicians that lack the resources to rehearse in professional facilities, a garage or basement is the only place they have to develop their talent and passion…For the sake of your local band Black Leaves of Envy, and for the generations of young musicians that they may eventually inspire, I ask you reconsider the restrictions put upon the volume of their private rehearsal space.”
