  Dave Grohl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Grohl began his music career in the 1980s as the drummer for several Washington, DC area bands, most notably the punk rock band Scream.
Grohl's name was also rumored as a possible replacement for Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese, and Grohl even performed with the band for a song or two at three shows during Pearl Jam's March 1995 Australian tour.
(Grohl can be seen drumming for the band in the video for the song "No One Knows".) After a brief US tour with the band and feeling rejuvenated by the effort, Grohl recalled the other Foo Fighters to completely re-record their album at his studio in Virginia.

 The Songs of Dave Grohl
Grohl also found time to write and record several demos around this time (playing all the instruments and singing himself), titled Pocketwatch, but more on that later.
During the sessions for the group's follow-up, 1993's In Utero, Grohl was allowed to contribute some of his own songwriting when he earned a co-writing credit for the heavy riff-rocker Scentless Apprentice and also recorded an original song, the quietly melodic "Marigold," which would appear as a B-side on the British "All Apologies" single.
Grohl gigged with the band through the summer, and also played on the breakthrough Queens LP Songs for the Deaf, issued that August.

Dave: They have done some demos and I know that they are talking to a record label about releasing a record, but I don't know when that is going to happen.

 Xtreme Musician: Dave Grohl
Dave initially turned them down to try and make a go with Dain Bramage, but eventually he would join Scream as their full-time drummer.
This was Grohl’s first big concert, and he found the whole thing “comical.” He couldn’t understand the appeal of the big, phony and contrived shows and vowed that he would never have anything to do with that kind of production.
Grohl smartly chose to get away from the chaos of the L.A. music scene, and he flew to Seattle with nothing but a drum set and a trash bag full of clothes.

Grohl has also released a platinum-selling Foo Fighters record, performed with Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello at the Grammys and been floated as a possible replacement for John Bonham on a Led Zeppelin reunion tour.
Grohl says, "I was like, 'Well, I don't know how to do a remix.' And he basically said, 'Do whatever you want.' So I got a drum set, a guitar and a bass and made some rock music, and they put it under the song.
Since then Grohl has got dozens of calls from bands looking for an expert fill-in drummer (inexplicably, bands go through drummers as fast as drummers go through groupies) and the cachet of having a former member of Nirvana play on their album.

Dave Grohl could be singing to his wife, bandmates Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins and Chris Shiflett, or to any and every fan listening to the song.
Heralded by the infectious "Learn To Fly," the album was in large part their answer record, especially in retrospect, to the testosterone-drenched rap-metal onslaught mounting in its year of release.
Grohl recalls: "We'd been recording the rock record for nearly two months when I finally realized 'OK, we have to start on this acoustic stuff or else it's not going to happen.' So I sat everyone down at this meeting where I said 'here's the deal: No more fuckin' around.

Assuming former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl dreads the thought of forever being known as "the guy from Kurt Cobain's band," the last thing he'd want to hear is that the debut album from his new band Foo Fighters sounds much like one from the deceased duke of grunge.
On this track, Grohl uses an interesting technique of muffling his voice nearly-completely so that the lyrics are unintelligible (fans have since deciphered the words to this song) and putting a very, VERY grungy riff for the verse and the chorus.
Dave then turns his attention to record industry politics with "Wattershed," and attacks how labels trap idealistic punk bands with their clauses and tricks in contracts, which essentially leads to the bands selling their souls.

Born on January 14, 1969, Grohl grew up in Washington, D.C., teaching himself to play drums and guitar.
The band's self-titled 1995 release became a hit, as the band's sound was similar to his last full-time band — hard-edged punk rockers mixed with melodic mid-tempo pop rockers.
