14-Year-Old Dave Grohl's Letter To Ian McKaye Shows How Hard Music Discovery Was Back Then

This shows how lucky we are that music discovery is easier now.

You don't just become the coolest motherfucker in rock overnight. It requires years of training, your entire life in fact. Dave Grohl is a lifer! In fact, he recently shared a photo of a letter he hand-wrote to Minor Threat's Ian McKaye that proves this fact:

This is how hard it was to discover new music. While today, we have endless options between Spotify, Youtube and everything in between to discover music, back then, you had to tape trade. And you had to find people to trade with. So you would write a letter, and leave your phone number with the times that would be appropriate to call.

Sometimes I forget how lucky we are as music fans nowadays.
