Dave Grohl’s local bonafides are well established. While most of the world will forever associate him with Seattle, the city he lived in as the drummer for Nirvana, the Springfield native has spoken fondly of many a night spent at the 9:30 Club. He told The Post’s Chris Richards that “Washington, D.C., and the music scene is the foundation of everything for me.” So when he rolls through town to play the Verizon Center on Nov. 11 with his massively succesful band Foo Fighters, the churning power chords and shout-out-loud choruses will be something of a tribute to his old hometown.
