...separated at birth...


dave grohl- steve hambrick- separated at birth? decide for yourself...

for years, people have approached steve telling him how much he favors dave grohl (lead singer of the foo fighters).  and some of those folks would swear that steve WAS dave when they met him.  almost every time we are in an airport, people stare at steve. or talk to him about the similarity.  it's actually quite bizarre, and we've come to expect the comparison. i'm surprised at how many people actually know who dave grohl is and what he looks like!

all of this was thrown into full throttle last night.  we went with our good friends joe and julie lamotta to the foo fighters concert in orlando.  you wouldn't have believed how many people yelled out at steve, or stared at him throughout the evening.  we even had a guy chanting, " DG! DG! DG!"  at him.  bizzarro. we tried our hardest to get backstage and meet the real dave, but try as we may, we remained in section 106 row k.  i schmoozed a cop, an old man checking ticket stubs, and dave's actual cousin i met at the foo fighters shirt kiosk.  none of them were impressed. 

maybe one day we'll meet steve's twin.  for now i suppose we are stuck settling for a good show... (and good it was)...

YES! although i'll never forget the time Steve 'landed' the role of Jesus during Easter services at Trinity. the resemblance there was uncanny. ;-)

he is dead-on for Dave Grohl, though! i love the "In Your Honor" album. especially the second disk. love that.

lucky yous, going to the Foo concert!

2 kids and you went to a Foo Fighters show? I feel so uncool at the moment. It must've rocked!

First of all!
jealous!
I didn't realize you went to the concert. lucky.

I just saw a new foo fighters video yesterday and Dave Grohl was acting soooo weird. it was made even weirder by the fact that it looked like Steve was the one being so odd. very enertaining :)

No question he and Dave are bros, but I know of one picture out there somewhere (probably and terry and betty's house) where stevo and Seinfeld were together forever!

Well at least you DON'T look like Wilford Brimley or Steve Buscemi.

Or Grace Jones. Yikes!!
