Who is her father Dave Grohl?
David Eric ‘Dave’ Grohl was born in Warren, Ohio USA, on 14 January 1969 – his zodiac sign is Capricorn, and he holds American nationality. He’s probably known best for having been the drummer of the rock band Nirvana.
Dave was raised in Warren alongside his sister Lisa, by their father James Harper Grohl who was a newswriter and who died in 2014, aged 76, and their mother Virginia Jean (nee Hanlon). Dave’s parents divorced when he was seven years old, and henceforth his mother took care of him.
He was 12 when he started to play the guitar, but disliked the classes he attended at a local music school, so started teaching himself. He was 13 when he was introduced to punk rock by his cousin, and was 14 when he attended his first concert (Naked Raygun in Chicago). Dave studied at Thomas Jefferson High School, but because he smoked marijuana every day with his friends there, his mother soon moved him to Bishop Ireton High School.
He was a member of a couple of bands during his teenage years, most notably of Dain Bramage, which he joined in December 1985; in March 1987, he joined Scream, and matriculated from high school in the same year. In 1990, the bassist Skeeter Thompson left Scream, which led to their disbandment.
He joined Nirvana in the same year, after having been introduced to the late singer-songwriter Kurt Cobain; their album “Nevermind” was released in 1991, and was a huge success worldwide. As time went by, Dave spent more time writing songs for Nirvana, however, they disbanded after Kurt’s death in April 1994.
He then founded Foo Fighters, which was supposed to be a one-man project, however, Dave soon recruited a guitarist, bassist and drummer, and the four released their debut album “Foo Fighters” on 4 July 1995. They have since released ten albums, and have won 12 Grammy Awards, which include four for Best Rock Album.
Dave is also a bit of an actor, and has made a guest appearance in an episode of numerous comedy series and shows, including “Saturday Night Live”, “Is It Fall Yet?” (voice role) and “Metalocalypse”.
He’s a philanthropist and a fighter for equal rights of all humans; Dave supports the LGBT community, as well as same-sex marriage. He’s a gun control advocate, and is also against the use of drugs such as cocaine, speed and heroin, however, he’s stated that he once used LSD and cannabis, but stopped when he was 20.
He married his first wife – Jennifer Leigh Youngblood – in 1994; at that time, she worked as a photographer in Grosse Pointe, Michigan; the two divorced in 1997, after having been separated for half a year.
Who is Harper’s mother Jordyn Blum?
Jordyn Blum was born in Los Angeles, California USA on 28 May 1976 – her zodiac sign is Gemini, and she holds American nationality. She’s probably known best for being Dave’s wife, but also for her modelling work in the ‘90s.
Jordyn was raised in Los Angeles by her parents about whom nothing’s known, as she respects their privacy; it’s said that her father was a lawyer, and that her mother was a homemaker. Because she hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most of Jordyn’s fans believe that she’s an only child.
She became interested in modelling while still attending a local elementary school, and signed her first contract while attending high school, after having been scouted by a modelling agent. Jordyn was just 17 years old when she was featured in the magazine “Teen”, and her career took off from there. She matriculated in 1994, and then didn’t enroll at college, but focused on her career.
She continued modelling until 2006, when she gave birth to her and Dave’s first child, and then chose to focus on raising their children.
Jordyn’s also known for having co-directed the 2002 music video “Foo Fighters: Walking a Line”, together with Chris Osterhus, as well as for having been featured in the 2003 TV special “The GQ Men on the Year Awards”.
