Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is set to be honoured by his hometown of Warren, Ohio with the unveiling of two 900 pound drumsticks.

The gigantic sticks have been carved from poplar logs as a tribute to the former Nirvana drummer. They will go on display on July 7 at the town's Warren Amphitheater, reports Rolling Stone.

In September they will be moved to Dave Grohl Alley, which was dedicated to the musician in 2009.

Meanwhile, the soundtrack for Dave Grohl's documentary on Sound City Studios, where Nirvana's 'Nevermind' was recorded, is set to be finished this autumn.

Producer Butch Vig revealed on Twitter that he had been back in the studio with the Foo Fighters mainman and former Nirvana bass player Krist Novoselic - pictured right - working on tracks for the new documentary.

Grohl is currently working on the film, which pays tribute to the studio complex where numerous classic albums including Slipknot's 'Iowa', and Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' were recorded. Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor, Tom Petty, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme are set to be among the contributors.

You can watch a teaser trailer for the documentary below:
