‘Gracious, generous’ Nickelback singer dines in the Valley

Published: Sun, February 21, 2010 @ 9:30 p.m.

The celebrity ate at the Spread Eagle Tavern where many GOP politicians have visited.



HANOVERTON — Chad Kroeger, the lead singer and lead guitarist for rock band Nickelback, got a taste of the Valley in recent days.

While in Columbiana County visiting his girlfriend, he ate in at least two restaurants.

Kroeger and his girlfriend dined Friday at the Spread Eagle Tavern in Hanoverton, said Dave Johnson, co-owner of the historic restaurant and inn.

“Everyone recognized him and asked for autographs,” Johnson said. “He was extremely gracious with his time. He stuck around after eating to sign more autographs and talk with people. He also stayed around to tour the inn.”

Kroeger was generous with his money.

“He gave the most generous tip his server ever received,” Johnson said.

The Spread Eagle is known as a destination location for Republican politicians.

Among its visitors are Vice Presidents Dick Cheney, Dan Quayle and Jack Kemp as well as presidential candidates John McCain and Pat Buchanan, and ex-Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

Yeah, they are overrated. I don't see the appeal at all.

Rude, useless comments... Many people in this area, including my husband and I, love Nickelback and it's great to hear he was in a local restaurant and was so generous. Wish I would have been there!

I like Nickleback,I saw them twice.It was very generous of Chad Kroeger to visit local restaurants,and tip the server as well as he did.This is a classic case of the typical negative mentality that is in our area,some people find fault and negativity,with anything positive.

Who cares if the band stinks? They gave the server, who probably makes $2 per hour, the biggest tip she has ever received. Recognize the good that comes from these articles, you douches.
