Dave Grohl is the nicest man in rock. What has he done this time? He helped a terminally ill fan achieve his bucket list wish.
Ken Powell has been fighting incurable cancer for years, but his wish to meet the Foo Fighters is finally about to get checked off his bucket list.
Powell had planned to make his wish to meet Dave Grohl come true when the band was on tour earlier this year, but unfortunately Grohl was forced to cancel all meet-and-greets due to a bout of food poisoning. As luck would have it, Ken’s friend was a flight attendant looking after the Foo Fighters on their flight home from Australia and told them Ken’s story.
Dave Grohl heard the news and sent Ken a photo of himself with the words, ‘Hi Ken’, along with VIP tickets to a Foo show in Los Angeles. Ken is now getting set to fly to America to meet the band in September.
