Singer Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters was happy with the gift of a new guitar, but the timing made it bittersweet.
The Gibson guitar came from stock car racer Dale Earnhardt Jr., who's a big rock music fan.
"Two days after I got the guitar I heard that his father had died," Grohl told reporters last week.
Earnhardt's dad, one of NASCAR's biggest stars, was killed in a crash at the Daytona 500.
"It's an amazing guitar," Grohl said. "We're doing a couple more shows in the next month and I plan on using it just to let him know that, you know, I'm rockin' it for him."
