April 28, 2013

WARREN — There’s really no questioning Teresa Puccia’s devotion to Dave Grohl, the Warren-born frontman of the rock ’n’ roll band Foo Fighters....

why so negative ? maybe this wont be a tourist attraction but the events they have attract a lot of local people. dave grohl visits his father here often, several times a year. he feels the alley is a great honor to his family. people contibute because the like the foo fighters, like nirvana, and like the sense of community. people bashing this are just unhappy in life and feel the need to attacck others because of it

Well, it's an alley and not a street thank goodness. I really don't see the significance either. It's more a shrine to a local native than it is about an individual of history or culture. What next? Beats the H E L L out of me ........

Ok Jtoday, what I'm saying is Dave Grohl (in my opinion) plays such a small insignificant role in history and culture that labeling an alley in his name as a tourist attraction is a bit much. Yet I'm in favor of any effort to beautify the City.

To spruce up any area is a good thing, but is'nt it laughable to name an alley after a guy making it a tourist attraction a bridge too far? That's all I have...

So glad to see such a creative and cool addition to DGA. Looking forward to seeing them soon. As for the negative comments, why should something that is so positive and happy bother anyone? Love Dave Grohl and Dave Grohl Alley. BTW, don't be so sure he doesn't visit! ;) Thanks to everyone who keeps the Rock Alive!

NEWS777 there was a recent article about Harry Stevens. He didn't actually sell the hot dogs at a major league stadium in Niles. Does that mean that Niles should rename anything with the Stevens name?

The Rock and Roll Hall is in Cleveland. Rock and Roll was not started in Cleveland. Using your logic it should be torn down.

George Washington never lived in D.C. therefore the name should be changed and the monument torn down.

IN OTHER WORDS - DAVE GROHL ALLEY CAN BE ANYWHERE SOMEONE IS INTERESTED IN ITS CREATION.

.....so many miserable people, sad.

Dave Grohl was born in Warren,but lived in Niles only until he was like 2. He himself says he has no real memories of Warren. He grew up in Virginia. He did come here for the dedication of the alley, but that was awhile ago. He hasn't been to anything since, including seeing the drumsticks. At this point he is trying to be cordial, but, he has no reason to come back here. He visits Niles where his dad still lives but only a few times. Please people..no one is coming to Warren to visit because Dave Grohl was born here. Even HE doesn't come here. It's nice to clean up the city. But, it's not a tourist attraction. Only to a handful of Grohl diehards.

'I'm totally against this Grohl Alley as a tourist attraction but if anyone takes steps to beautify any part of town it's certainly a good thing.'

NomoreCrap I need an explanation of this statement.

That really was very thoughtful of her, I hope teens won't trash it. I'm totally against this Grohl Alley as a tourist attraction but if anyone takes steps to beautify any part of town it's certainly a good thing.

My wife & I parked downtown and walked the bike trail from behind the log cabin. Contrary to what is said downtown is very safe, we only saw 2 homeless folks but they were in the Courthouse park. It was exilerating to stand under the Summit Bridge watching the rushing water.

I'm not sure I'd do any of that at night unarmed but it certainly made for a peaceful day's exercise. Unfortunately there was nothing open downtown, it would have been nice to grab a snack or shop an odd store...
