Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl backs Black Leaves of Envy in noise row

US rocker Dave Grohl has leapt to the defence of a teenage heavy metal band from Cornwall - after their local council said they were too loud.

The Black Leaves of Envy were told they would have to stop practising in a family garage after noise complaints from neighbours.

Foo Fighters frontman Grohl penned an open letter to the authority after the band contacted him.

He asked Cornwall Council to "reconsider the restrictions".

In the open letter, former Nirvana drummer Grohl says he started out practising in a garage and says music is a "wonderful, creative outlet for kids".
