David Grohl Alley was created in downtown Warren, Ohio, in 2009 to honor the Foo Fighters frontman and former drummer with Nirvana who was born in the city. Local artists added paintings to the brick walls of the alley, and now there’s a life-size metal sculpture of Grohl at his drums. THIS PHOTO IS NOT FOR SALE!
