Dear Dave, Happy 36th! (Yay, this is the time of year when you're way older than I am, ahahaha) Hope it's a good one, and I hope we'll get to see each other well before your 37th.
ps, I'm first in line to give out your birthday spankies
I hope you enjoy your birthday with your lovely wife Jordyn and your friends. I have admired you for years for all your hard work from Freak Baby to the present. I am also amazed at your versatility--I don't know of any other musician that can play drums, guitar, bass, sing, and write lyrics. I have all four FF albums. I have yet to see you guys live, but I look forward to it. I am also a Washington, D.C. native, but I moved to Philadelphia in August 2002.

Happy birthday man! Hope you have a kickass day. Looking forward
to the album and all the shows and stuff. Mark and Mark over in England
Just want to wish you a very happy birthday. I wish you all the best of
everything..........since I've been wishing that for you for the past few
years, I guess my positive thoughts and wishes have been really
working...........you seem to have the best of everything. I wish you
continued success in your career and in your life. You have brought all of
us many many hours of "kick ass" music to enjoy. I wish there was some way
we could all give you something in return.
Please stay as wonderful as you are. You have a very giving heart and you
are a terrific person.
Have a wonderful day.
Love. Bonnie L. Blank
happy birthday dave!

i stand by the quote "getting a singer's spit in your face at a small gig is a badge of honour" because it is even if it is also a bit gross.
Just one of those postboard weirdos here to wish you a happy birthday, and a little thank you for all the brilliant music over the years (as if all the money isn't enough :D) and all the times you've given people something to tap their feet to, or even the quick air guitar now and again.
Good luck with you new album, and have a great birthday.
Best wishesRichard Lambeth, Newcastle, UK
Ode to Dave's Hair
(pathetically written by Lisa)
The thing about Dave Grohl that I love a lot
is the massive amount of hair he's got.
Oh that woundrous thing he has upon his head
I'd like to crawl in it and make it my bed
It's long and illustrious, oh so full of life
if you could marry hair, I'd surely be its wife
All of lifes answers are harbored inside his locks
like what exactly the dryer does when it loses your socks
And so in tribute of that magical thing growing on top
I wrote this pathetic poem, which I will now stop.
It's 12.02am on an unusally still night in Wellington NZ.
After a complete ass-blow out concert by Tenacious D, we think it rather
fitting to send you Kiwi birthday wishes. We hope you have a great
36th birthday, and here's hoping for 36 more ass-kicking years.
HIIII !! I WANNA SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DAVE ,
I REALLY ENJOY HIS SONGS LIKE A MILLION PEOPLE IN THE WORLD AND OTHER CRAPS MORE , BUT WHATEVER
JUST HAVE A NICE DAY A NICE YEAR AND THAT YOU HAVE TO COME TO BRAZIL AGAIN!!! WE ARE REALLY MAD IF YOU GUYSSS !! SO GOOD LUCK WITH THE NEW ALBUM!!
MY NAME IS CAMILA REIS FROM BRAZIL !! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAN!!!
Happy Birthday, Dave!
my name is Timo
Happy Birthday, Dave!
Just a quick note from a 37 yr old fan (you are catching up!!) I love your music and think you are very talented. I have 2 little girls and they can both identify Foo Fighters songs instantaneously--my 3 yr old, Eloise will say "Is that Foo Fightah's?" I have heard you say you are ready for kiddos--go for it, it's the best. Especially when they are old enough to play with each other. The baby phase is fun too, but is a bit daunting the first time--poop looks like mustard??!! Well just know you have a big fan in NC that is also a mom (gasp--we're not all teeny boppers) and keep the great tunes coming. I hope you guys will tour once the album comes out---come to Raleigh, NC--you can visit Corolla while you are here. (I heard you used to have a beach house there--we love to go down there and spent New Years there this yr).
Happy Bday, you old fart!
Mary Beth Osborne --Durham, NC
Love, your fan forever,
Hey, Dave...Happy Birthday from a DC girl. (Bethesda, actually)
Just wanted to wish you the best and say thanks for my recent eBay purchase to benefit The Grammy Foundation. I was the winning bidder that took home your signed cymbal and the signed drumhead. They are now framed and look spectacular in my living room. Can't wait for the new album and especially some concert dates? soon? please? I'll be at as many shows that I can get to including any back in our home town.
Thanks for all the fun!
Just wanted to drop a line: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope everything is going good. I can't wait for the new tunes; I'm like pee-in-my-pants excited! Well, thanks for musically inspiring me everyday... (haha! that was so cheesy) But seriously, you do. Can't wait to see you next time you're in Atlanta. Alright, man, take care and best wishes. (Ok. That was like 3 lines, oh well)
P.S Thanks for getting me into Chan. She is my favorite…..right after you of course ;)
Bethany here, or Draca as I'm known on the postboard. I'm a longtime Foos fan, a member of the postboard when it first began, and I saw you when you came to Denver both in 1998 and 2003. Oh yeah, I also saw you when you appeared on the local program Teletunes before it became defunct. Anyway, I just wanted to wish you a very happy birthday this year! In the past I've always submitted art (usually Simpsons
related) for these things, but I guess this year we're doing things a little differently, so...
Anyway, I hope you have a very happy and exciting birthday!
I can't wait to see you guys when you come to Denver next!
Hey Dave, your biggest fan in Ireland, Ruthann O'Connor here, just wishing
you a very happy birthday. Will send a card, sorry I'm late getting around
to it! Can't wait to hear the new album. I'm sure it'll be great. Keep up
the great work. See you in July!!!
Happy Birthday, Dave!!!!
I wish you much success and happiness this year and the years to come.
