What would you do if Dave Grohl showed up at your school? That outlandish idea became reality recently for one high school principal! When the Foo Fighters frontman showed up at his former educational stomping grounds, Annandale High School in Annandale, Virgina, current school head Tim Thomas got an exciting chance to meet the affable rocker.
And it looks like Grohl was on location at the public high school as part of an upcoming movie about his life, a film crew accompanying the former Nirvana percussionist to the Fairfax County facility, as reported by Loudwire. (Grohl’s mother, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, previously revealed that the Dave doc was in the works to the Sydney Morning Herald.)

“Went outside to investigate a film crew on campus,” the school administrator writes, “only to discover that it was Dave Grohl from @foofighters who went to AHS and whose mother was an English teacher at AHS. What a treat! Go Atoms!!”
Dave’s mother earlier hinted that the imminent film focuses on the rocker’s life “from Scream to Nirvana to Foo Fighters,” encompassing the major turning points of the musician’s career. “We are doing that,” she said. “Coming soon.”
Grohl recently performed Nirvana’s classic “All Apologies” plus his 23-minute instrumental song from recent mini-doc Play at the annual Warren Haynes’ Christmas Jam. And he didn’t really block that Sunny Day Real Estate album from coming out.
Whether student or instructor, what would you do if Dave Grohl dropped in on your average school day? Are you excited to watch the upcoming movie about the Foo Fighters leader’s life? Sound off in the comments section with your take!
