Dave Grohl Performed at This Tribute to Ronnie James Dio!

Classic Dave Grohl. Not sleeping or taking some time off. He was at a pretty awesome celebration, though. The Ride for Ronnie event was a motorcycle ride that also helps benefit a great cause: the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund!

Via Rolling Stone:

“I am here on this beautiful day in Encino [because] everybody loves Ronnie James Dio,” Grohl said at the event. “He was my neighbor actually; we lived down the street from each other. I encourage everybody to come out and support the cause, because it’s a beautiful day with a bunch of beautiful people and we hope to see you next year.”

Ride for Ronnie launched in 2015 to raise awareness and money for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund(Dio died from stomach cancer in 2010). The event includes a giant motorcycle ride that starts in Glendale, California and ends at Los Encinos Park, where the concert was held. Last year, Ride for Ronnie raised $50,000 for the Dio for Cancer Fund.
