During their set at Saint Paul, Minnesota over the weekend, Dave Grohl proved once again that he is the nicest rocker in the business by inviting a blind child and his parents up onto stage.
We want to be Dave Grohl. Or just, you know, share the stage with him - that would be alright too. Well, that's what lucky child Owen Anderson got to do at the Foo Fighters' latest concert in America. Just a couple weeks after Grohl invited a 10-year-old to the stage to play 'Enter Sandman' at a gig in Kansas City, the frontman spotted Anderson and his parents in the crowd at Saint Paul and invited them up on stage for the remainder of the concert:

Coming in from NME, Owen's mother Stacey took to Facebook to share her joy of being part of the Foo Fighter's gig. She said, “Dave Grohl and all of the crew were incredibly kind to our family. Owen is in fact blind, he also has Autism, Crohn’s Disease and developmental disabilities."
She added "We have taken Owen to close a 100 shows. It’s so fun and he brings out the best in so many people. Owen has a pretty huge story and has been through so much in his life already, we are just trying to give him the best life we can.”
In the video below, you can see Grohl going over to the Anderson's and letting Owen play his guitar half-way through his set (from about the 3.00 mark):
