Dave Grohl receives giant drumsticks honour

Foo Fighters star Dave Grohl is to be honoured in his hometown with a pair of massive drumsticks.

Carved from a local log, the 900 pound (408.2 kilogram) sticks will be unveiled in Warren, Ohio this weekend (07Jul12).

They'll take pride of place at the Warren Amphitheater until September (12), when they'll be moved to Dave Grohl Alley - the part of town named after the former Nirvana drummer in 2009.
