Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl helped the homeless by throwing a barbecue for them at a charity in Los Angeles last week.
Dave brought a meat smoker and kit night out to The Hope Mission in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
He made the ribs, pork, brisket, cabbage, coleslaw, and beans for the meal, spending a total of 16 hours preparing the food and then letting the meat rest.
While he was busy fully participating in food preparation, he was able to sleep a little in between.
according to TMZHe handled all the expenses himself and made sure the kitchen was perfect for homeless people.
The star’s culinary masterpieces fed a total of 500 people, including 450 homeless people.
This comes after Dave spoke about his hearing loss in 2022 and the effect this has had on him after four decades of swinging.
In an interview on The Howard Stern Show, the Everlong star admitted that he is “deaf” and has been relying on lip reading for the past 20 years.
“I haven’t tried them in a long time — I mean, I know what they have to say,” he told Stern, after being asked why he didn’t use earphones. “You have hearing damage with tinnitus in your left ear, more so than in your right ear. ”
The two-time Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee continued, “His left ear is kind of worse than the right” from all the years he’s been playing drums and having his drum and sound monitor on his left.
Many performers have turned to in-ear monitors to help adjust volume and frequencies, but Grohl insists they “knock them out.” [him] of the natural atmosphere sound while playing the party.
I want to hear the audience like, right in front of me and I want to turn around to be able to hear [drummer] Taylor [Hawkins] There and go here and hear [guitarist] pat [Smear]And go here and listen [guitarist] Chris [Shiflett] And things like that,” he explained about his experience with his Foo Fighters bandmates, adding, “It just messes with your spatial understanding of where you are on stage. “
While he admitted that he has resorted to lip reading for the better part of two decades, it has proven to become more difficult since wearing masks became the norm in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you were sitting next to me here at dinner, I wouldn’t understand a word you said to me, all the time. There’s no way,’ he told Stern.
In a busy restaurant, this is even worse. This is the worst thing about this pandemic, it’s like people wearing masks. I’ve been lip reading for 20 years… I’m a rock musician. I’m deaf, I can’t hear what you’re saying.
Tinnitus, which Grohl believes he has in his left ear, is often described as ringing in one or both ears, even though there is no external sound, according to Mayo Clinic.
It is usually caused by an underlying condition, such as age-related hearing loss, ear infection, or a circulatory problem.
Although Grohl had difficulty understanding people during normal conversations, he maintained that he was still able to hear “the smallest of little things” while recording music in the studio and mixing albums.
My ears are still tuned in to certain frequencies, and if I hear something a little out of tune, or a cymbal that’s not bright enough or something like that, in the mix, I can hear the details of everything we did for that song, I can really, ”
He also minimized the amount of damage to his ears by having the same audio mixer for his stage performances from his days with Nirvana in the early ’90s.
I’ve had the same person mix screens for 31 years. I mean the guy said Grohl. “And even though I don’t use in-ear monitors, for me the onstage sound was perfect because it was the same person.”
The Learn To Fly star went on to reveal that, “It’s not like I’m on stage getting my a**-kick for some whooping thing.” They look great. And I just don’t like things that go in the ear.
