Did you know Dave Grohl and Ronnie James Dio used to be neighbors?


At the 5th Annual Ride For Ronnie on Sunday, May 5th, Mr. Grohl hopped behind the drum kit for impromptu covers of Motörhead and Thin Lizzy, mentioning that the late Ronnie James Dio used to live right down the street from him. 


The event raises funds and awareness for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund, a 100% volunteer run organization committed to finding a cure for cancer, which took Dio's life in 2010. You can make a donation to further the mission here


Happy Rocking,
