Always be yourself (unless you can be like Dave Grohl)

February 16th, 2001: The day everyone learned that not only is Dave Grohl the former drummer of grunge band Nirvana — and current singer of post-grunge band the Foo Fighters — but also a super funny dude who doesn’t take his job too seriously, and watches the same movies you and I do.

Appearing on The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn, we fell in love with Dave Grohl because he’s just like us.

We’ve been raised to believe that we should be ourselves at all times, unless you can be Dave Grohl, in which case: you should be Dave Grohl.

One of the Food Fighter’s biggest fans is David Letterman.

After Letterman had open-heart surgery, he openly admitted the song ‘Everlong’ played a positive part in his recovery. As such, Dave asked the band to perform the song on his first show back from the hospital.

Dave Grohl: ‘Nicest Guy in Rock’

Posted on by Mike

nice-guy

Dave Grohl’s title of “Nicest Guy in Rock” stems from Ozzfest in 1998.

After a cancelation, Grohl & the Foo Fighters were asked to jump on the bill alongside Slayer, Pantera & Black Sabbath  Grohl was worried the band’s sound wasn’t going to fit the overall sound of Ozzfest & there would be what he described to Rolling Stone magazine as a “riot”.

The Foo’s followed Pantera that night & Grohl’s insecurities went away when he looked after and saw the guys from Pantera watching from the side of the stage and singing along.

‘Dumbest band name ever’: How the Foo Fighters got their name

Some of the rocks greatest bands have got their names from weird places, like Stone Temple Pilots liking the logo of the STP motor oil bottle then finding words that went with it.

The Foo Fighters are no different.  In 2010, Dave Grohl revealed that around the time of the first Foo Fighters record in 1995 he was reading a lot of books on UFO’s.

When talking to Clash magazine Grohl said: “Around the time that I recorded the first FF tape (that became the first record), I was reading a lot of books on UFO’s. Not only is it a fascinating subject, but there’s a treasure trove of band names in those UFO books!” he said.
