Dave Grohl's Birthday

TDIM - Dave Grohl's Birthday - 14th Jan
“I can understand how some people might resent me for having the audacity to continue playing music, but it'd take a lot more than that to stop me from doing it. I started Foo Fighters because I didn't want to retreat.”

Today is Dave Grohl’s birthday! He is a multitalented artist. He is the songwriter and founder of the legendary band “Foo Fighters”. Prior to Foo Fighters, Grohl was also the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana.

Till today, Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters front-man, will always be remembered as the drummer for Nirvana. But, drumming for a great band such as Nirvana was not Dave's only claim in the world of music. Dave's musical career began at age 15 as the guitarist and later as the drummer for a punk band called "Freak Baby". A year later, he was behind the drums for "Mission Impossible" and later that summer drumming for "Dain Bramage". Another year down the road, an opportunity to drum with one of his favourite punk bands, "Scream", was just too great to pass up. This leads us to 1990 when "Scream" seemed to be coming to an end and "Nirvana" was in need of a drummer. While recording and touring with "Nirvana", Dave continued to write lyrics and music that he would record during breaks with "Nirvana." After the tragic end of "Nirvana", Dave eventually turned to his music to create Foo Fighters.

Grohl has also additionally written all the music and performed all the instruments for his short-lived side projects Late and Probot, as well as being involved with Queens of the Stone Age numerous times throughout the past decade.

He has even performed as a drummer for a variety of musicians, including Garbage, Killing Joke, Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie, Paul McCartney, The Prodigy, Slash, Iggy Pop, Juliette Lewis, Tenacious D, RDGLDGRN, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Lemmy, Stevie Nicks and Ghost.

We wish this artist a very Happy Birthday!
