Happy birthday, Dave Grohl; happy birthday to you.

Dave Grohl is now on the AARP mailing list, a year after LL Cool J and two years behind Emily Watson.

Dave Grohl

David Eric Grohl (born January 14, 1969) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, multi-instrumentalist, and film director. He is the founder, frontman, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and primary songwriter of the rock band Foo Fighters since 1994, and was the longest-serving drummer for Nirvana from 1990 to 1994.
....

Early life

David Eric Grohl was born on January 14, 1969, in Warren, Ohio, the son of teacher Virginia Jean (née Hanlon) and newswriter James Harper Grohl (1938–2014). He is of German, Irish, and Slovak descent. When he was a child, Grohl's family moved to Springfield, Virginia. When Grohl was seven, his parents divorced, and he subsequently grew up with his mother.
....

In Virginia, Grohl attended Thomas Jefferson High School as a freshman. He was elected vice president of his freshman class and in that capacity would manage to play bits of songs by punk bands like Circle Jerks and Bad Brains over the school intercom before his morning announcements. Grohl's mother decided that he should transfer to Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria because his cannabis use was affecting his grades. He stayed there for two years, beginning with a repeat of his first year. After his second year, he transferred yet again to Annandale High School.
....

Dave Grohl attended Jefferson before it became a STEM school. If I'm not mistaken, he was a goalie on the JV lacrosse team while at Annandale. His mom used to teach in the Fairfax County school system.

At any rate, the offers from AARP will now come pouring in.

1. The big 50! Or, as I now refer to it, "The Brick Wall".

Up to the age of 50, I felt like I was 20. Now, @ 53, I feel like I'm 70...
