Sign Dave Grohl’s Cast? There’s a Web Site For That.


The World’s Nicest Rocker is also, apparently, indestructible. After falling off the stage and breaking his leg during a June 12 concert in Sweden, Foo Fighter Dave Grohl went on with the show for another two and a half hours as medics stood by his side.

How do you give back to the hardest working man in show business? By signing his cast with a message of your support and care.

Simply go to, sign in with your Twitter account and tweet well wishes with the hashtag #SignDavesCast. All posts will appear on Dave’s Virtual Cast. Some of the tweets will be printed on a flexible cast sleeve and presented to Grohl while he recuperates from his post-injury surgery.

The sleeve, which can hold about 300 messages, will be presented to Grohl in early July.

The microsite is the brainchild of creative agency EVB and development shop BausCode.

“The Internet is best when it’s used for good,” says EVB’s ECD Steve Babcock, who with the agency created the social movement #RedThumbReminder, an initiative intended to curb texting/distracted driving. “Commemorating such a hardcore act as finishing a show with a broken leg felt like just the thing to do with the technology.”

Rock on, Dave. Just please don’t break a leg next time.
