He has never taken a singing, guitar, bass or drum lesson. His mother was a school teacher, his father was a professional flute player. Dave Grohl dropped out of high school to join his favourite underground punk band “Scream”. In school he played and took lessons for the trombone. In “Scream” he started out as the 2nd guitar player. Took over on drums since the drummer wasn’t so good.
A year before “Nevermind” was released he joined Nirvana. The first popular release by Nirvana was the album “Bleach” with a different drummer. Dave Grohl was the 5th drummer for Nirvana. The first Foo Fighter album was released in 1995, all instruments and vocals done by Dave Grohl in a week. During that time Tom Petty asked him to play drums with his band on Saturday Night Live. He did, then got another call from Tom Petty to see if he would like to join the band permanently as the drummer? Dave reluctantly opted to see if the Foo Fighters thing would work out and asked 3 others to join him.
Courtney Love-Cobain goes out of her way to publically bash Dave Grohl and assumes most songs are about her as a backhanded slap, in other words…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6UAYGxiRwU
Dave Grohl got $15,000,000 after Kurt Cobain took his own life. I’m assuming Courtney Love got just as much, if not more? So according to her, it’s Dave’s fault that her mother is homeless? So what happened to her money? Everything that has been released by Nirvana since Kurt’s suicide has been organized by Dave, Courtney and Krist.
Dave admits that things were awkward with him and Kurt. There we’re the people who did drugs and the people who didn’t. Kurt hung out with the people that did the drugs while Dave still hasn’t done drugs since high school.
Dave Grohl is not the best rock drummer in the world. Ever heard of RUSH? Neil Peart comes up with amazing drum patterns and solos!
Watch the “Back & Forth” documentary, this is all in the movie and lots more, I knew this stuff before I saw the movie in 2011, I did learn one thing though that I’ve purposely left out of this.
“Rock” bands, real rock bands, are disappearing fast, fact. I never used to listen to metal! It’s easier to find and sounds good to me. I still go back to the rock I listened to in the ’90s.

Last night Kim and I had a discussion.
Me: Kim where’s my cribbage board?
Kim: On top of the hutch
Me: What? On Jaba de Hut?
Honestly I misheard what she said, I was looking for Jaba de Hut! Why? Wouldn’t that be cool if we lived with a Star Wars character?
