Dave Grohl Writes To Cornwall Council In Support Of Teenage Band | Music News
The “Nicest Guy In Rock” has once again proven himself worthy of the title. On March 22, Dave Grohl wrote a letter to Cornwall Council in response to local teen band, Black Leaves Of Envy, who were told to keep the noise down to 30 to 40 decibels, maximum, after complaints from neighbours.
Andrew Plenty, father of two in the band, decided to speak up. As reported by Team Rock, Plenty said: “There’s a quote from Dave Grohl saying kids should get into their garages and start practising if they would like to be the new Nirvana. We’ve, hopefully, sent off a letter to Mr Grohl asking for his endorsement with our campaign”.
As someone who grew up with music and played in bands as a teen, Grohl was more than happy to support the band. The Foos frontman appealed to the Council to reconsider the volume restrictions; “I believe that it is crucial that children have a place to explore their creativity and establish a sense of self through song,” he said, amongst other things.
Grohl also provided some advice on sound-proofing, view that and the letter in full here.
