Dave Grohl to be the 2015 Record Store Day Ambassador

Dave Grohl Record Store Day

Next Saturday, April 18, the music industry will once again celebrate the Record Store Day, a day in which tribute is paid to music recorded on vinyl and independent record stores around the world. This year Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was recently elected as Record Store Day ambassador, with the well-known musician leading the festivities for this special day for vinyl-loving music lovers.

In the press release, Dave Grohl encouraged the initiative of the event: “I grew up in Springfield, Virginia (USA), in the 70s and 80s. I can remember that my record stores were almost magical places, mysterious places where I spent all my free time (and where I spent my money) in the search for what would eventually become the soundtrack of my life. Every weekend I couldn't wait to spend the money I had earned mowing to turn it into an afternoon full of discovery. And the hunt was always as good as the catch! ".

Grohl continues to tell his story by confessing: “I spent hours looking at each stack of records, examining the art on all the covers, titles and credits, looking for music that could inspire me, make me understand myself, or just help me escape through music. These places became a site of worship since ever. They made me feel like home. I think I don't know where I would be today without having gone through them. I believe that the power of the record store to inspire is still alive and well, and that its importance to our next generation of musicians is crucial. "
