Dave Grohl of not only visited some firefighters battling the California wildfires– he also cooked them BBQ

It’s official: Dave Grohl really is the coolest guy in rock. On Monday (Nov. 12), the Foo Fighters frontman went to Los Angeles County Fire Station 68 to visit the firefighters working to put out the horrific California wildfires.

In typical Grohl fashion, he didn’t just stop by and say hello. While he was visiting, Grohl also cooked some flavorful barbecue for the crew.

The fire station posted a photo from Grohl’s visit on Instagram with the caption, “It was awesome to get a visit tonight from Dave Grohl of the @foofighters.”

“Thank you for all the concern love and support,” he wrote in the caption. “This is crazy & heartbreaking. God bless all those affected by these horrific wildfires. I hope our home survives.”

The massive California wildfires have displaced some rock stars, including Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Flea wrote on Instagram that he was safely in Los Angeles, and that his neighbor Eric helped save his house.

“My house might have burned down down last night were it not for my friend Eric…who defied the evacuation orders and stayed up all through the night armed with his wits and a garden hose, and put out all the little fires at my house and my neighbors,” Flea stated in the post. “He is a brave and beautiful, a selfless and kind man.”
