Growing up in the Washington D.C. area, Dave Grohl began to teach himself the guitar and after his cousin took him to various punk rock music shows. At those shows, Grohl's love for the genre was sealed. During his early high school years, Grohl played guitar for various local bands, all the while teaching himself how to play drums.

Grohl stuck with Scream until their disbandment four years later, and through a friend was invited to audition for up-and-coming Seattle based band Nirvana. As we all know now, Nirvana would go on to become one of the most successful and influential rock groups of all time.
Following Kurt Cobain's death and Nirvana's demise, Dave spent six days recording music on his own trying to distract himself from the pain. He played most of the instruments on the tracks and recorded them himself. When he was done, he produced 100 cassette tapes and handed them out to friends.

The Foo Fighters were born from this process and would go on to to have a very successful music career. Grohl also has spent some time making guest appearances for bands like Pearl Jam and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. To date, Grohl has released seven studio albums with Foo Fighters. The band has sold tens of millions of albums worldwide and won multiple Grammy awards.
