At Dave's book release event for "The Storyteller" (at the Ford-Los Angeles, October 12, 2021)



David Eric Grohl (born January 14, 1969) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, author, and documentary filmmaker. He was the drummer for rock band Nirvana and founded the alternative rock band Foo Fighters, for whom he is the singer, guitarist, and primary songwriter. Grohl is also the drummer and co-founder of the rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, and wrote the music for his short-lived side projects Late! and Probot. He has also recorded and toured with Queens of the Stone Age.


At age 17, Grohl joined punk rock band Scream after the departure of drummer Kent Stax. He joined Nirvana soon after Scream's disbandment. Nirvana's second album, and the first to feature Grohl, Nevermind (1991), became a worldwide commercial success. Following the suicide of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in 1994, Grohl formed Foo Fighters, initially a one-man project. In 1995, the eponymous debut album was released by Roswell and Capitol Records. After the success of the album, Grohl assembled a band for touring and further recording, since which the Foo Fighters have released nine additional albums.





Grohl established himself as a respected drummer with Nirvana; in 2014, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with former bandmates Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic, in the group's first year of eligibility. In 2010, Grohl was described by Ken Micallef, co-author of the book Classic Rock Drummers, as one of the most influential rock musicians of the last 20 years. In 2021, Grohl was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a second time as a member of Foo Fighters, also in their first year of eligibility.


Having directed numerous Foo Fighters music videos since 1997, Grohl debuted as a documentary filmmaker with 2013's Sound City, followed by the documentary miniseries Sonic Highways (2014), and the 2021 documentary What Drives Us. Also in 2021, he published his first book, a memoir titled The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music.
