Dave Grohl net worth: Dave Grohl is an American rock musician who has a net worth of $260 million dollars. 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. He eventually became good talented enough to be hired as the drummer for a band called "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. 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. One of those tapes ended up in the hands of a record executive at Capital Records who signed Dave on the spot thinking the songs were created by a full band. 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. Additionally, Dave 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. Despite being one of the most successful musicians of all time, Dave is generally considered to be one of the nicest and most down to earth celebrities in the world.
