A week after bringing a 10-year-old boy on stage to play Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” Grohl was once again making dreams come true as he invited a disabled boy and his family on stage to watch the Foo Fighters concert in St. Paul.
Grohl not only gave 10-year-old Owen Anderson the best seat in the house for the Foo Fighters concert at the Xcel Energy Center, but also gave the boy a chance of a lifetime by playing with the legendary band.
At one amazing point, Grohl lowered his guitar so Owen could play a couple of riffs along with the rest of the band. “Dave Grohl and all of the crew were incredibly kind to our family,” Stacy said.
Owen’s mom, Stacy Anders, gave some more details about the awesome moment and how great her son is. “We have taken Owen to close a 100 shows. It’s so fun and he brings out the best in so many people. Owen has a pretty huge story and has been through so much in his life already, we are just trying to give him the best life we can.”
“Owen is in fact blind, he also has autism, Crohn’s Disease, and developmental disabilities,” Stacy said of her son. “Owen loves concerts so much. He was definitely not tired, he likes to be held up front at most shows and we take turns hold him up so he can dance.”
The Foo Fighters also played a mashup of Van Halen’s “Jump” and John Lennon’s “Imagine” that is unlike any other.
