Who is her husband? Dave Grohl Short Wiki/Bio

David Eric ‘Dave’ Grohl was born on 14 January 1969 under the zodiac sign of Capricorn, in Warren, Ohio USA. He was raised by his father, James Harper Grohl, who was a news writer, and his mother, Virginia Jean, who worked as a teacher. His parents divorced when he was seven years old, after which he and his sister named Lisa moved with his mother to Springfield, Virginia.

He learned to play the guitar at the age of 12, while he was introduced to punk rock when 13. Speaking about his education, he went to Thomas Jefferson High School, where he was class vice-president in his freshman year.

Due to his cannabis use, his mother transferred him to Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria, but two years later he transferred again, to Annandale High School. While in school, he played in several local bands, and at the time he also learned to play drums.

Career Beginnings and Scream

Dave Grohl launched his professional career at the age of 17, when he auditioned to be the drummer for the popular punk rock band Scream after the departure of Kent Stax. He lied about his age and was eventually offered the job, so he decided to drop out of high school in his junior year and joined them. He toured with the band and recorded several live albums as well as two studio albums, entitled “No More Censorship” and “Fumble”, on which he also sang on one track.

He then became a very good friend of the Melvins and their guitarist Buzz Osborne, who took his friends Krist Novoselic and Kurt Cobain from the band Nirvana to see Scream. A few months later, Nirvana was looking for a new drummer during the same time when Scream disbanded, so Dave later joined them.

Rise to Fame and Nirvana

Dave’s first project with Nirvana was their second studio album “Nevermind”, released in 1991 to both critical and commercial success, topping the Billboard 200, while its lead single “Smells Like Teen Spirit” reached No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Around the same time, he was also working on his own material, and even released a cassette album entitled “Pocketwatch” under the pseudonym Late! in 1992.

He then worked with the band on their third studio album – “In Utero” (1993) – which also excelled all expectations and was praised by critics, topping the Billboard 200 chart, and being certified five-time platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It was the final album of the band before Cobain’s suicide in 1994.

Continued Success and Foo Fighters

Following the death of Cobain and the demise of Nirvana, Dave Grohl focused on producing his own songs. He played all instruments on the tracks, and completed material for an album in only five days, then produced 100 cassette copies for his friends; wanting to stay anonymous, he took the name Foo Fighters.

One of those tapes ended up in the hands of a Capital Records executive, who signed him up, after which Dave formed a band, recruiting bassist Nate Mendel, drummer William Goldsmith, and guitarist Pat Smear.

Their debut self-titled studio album was officially released in 1995, earned positive reviews and became a huge commercial success. It peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard 200, and achieved gold certification from the RIAA. It was followed up by their second album “The Colour And The Shape” in 199, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. They then left Capital Records, and signed with RCA Records, through which the band issued their album, “There Is Nothing Left To Lose” (1999), which won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album.

It was followed up by the 2005 double album “In Your Honor”, which topped the charts in several countries, and the 2007 album “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace”, which spawned such hit singles as “Long Road To Ruin”, “The Pretender”, and “Let It Die”. The latter was also nominated for five Grammy Awards, winning one in the category of Best Rock Album.

The band’s first number-one studio album was their seventh, “Wasting Light”, which came out in 2011; it was certified platinum by the RIAA, and rewarded with four Grammys.

Three years later, they released their eighth album, entitled “Sonic Highways”, which reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200, after which they recorded their ninth album, “Concrete And Gold” (2017), which debuted atop the Billboard 200 ,and received positive reviews from music critics. Most recently, they produced their tenth studio album “Medicine At Midnight” (2021), which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
