The sticks, created from poplar logs, will be displayed at the amphitheater until September at which time they will be moved to Dave Grohl Alley, a street the town previously named after the Foo Fighter frontman.
The alley is named for Foo Fighters’ frontman and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, who was born in Warren in 1969. The Grammy Award winning drummer, guitar player and singer attended and performed at the dedication of the alley in 2009.
Grohl wasn’t in attendance Saturday, but Mayor Doug Franklin read aloud the full-page ad Grohl placed in the Tribune Chronicle Saturday thanking the community, ”For my very own alley. For the world’s largest drumsticks! And for all of your support … But most of all, for being such a great community. One that makes me proud to say … I am from Warren, Ohio!”
