Musician Dave Grohl has an estimated worth of $225 million dollars. Growing up in the Washington D.C. area, Grohl began to teach himself the guitar and after his cousin took him to various punk rock music 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, eventually becoming talented enough to win the position of drummer in the band Scream when he was seventeen. 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. Knowing his drumming changed the sound of Nirvana, Grohl refused to add any sort of alterations by contributing his own songwriting, opting to record and release his own solo efforts instead.
Following Kurt Cobain's death and Nirvana's demise, Grohl piddled around, guest appearing for bands like Pearl Jam and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, before finally deciding to sign with Capitol records and recruit members for the band that would soon be known as Foo Fighters. To date, Grohl has released six albums with Foo Fighters, which has garnered six Grammy awards thus far. Additionally, Grohl has contributed to many other projects, working with music artists such as Tenacious D, Nine Inch Nails, Killing Joke, Queens of the Stone Age, David Bowie and Paul McCartney.
