About Dave Grohl
Dave Grohl, full name David Eric Grohl, is an American musician, singer and songwriter. He is best known as the founder, lead vocalist, main songwriter and guitarist in the rock band Foo Fighters. Prior to founding his own band Dave played drums in another super group Nirvana. Since then he has played drums for a number of other famous musicians, including Garbage, Nine Inch Nails, Paul McCartney, David Bowie and The Prodigy. Dave Grohl net worth is currently estimated at $225 million, making him one of the wealthiest lead singers in entertainment business.
Dave was born in Ohio and raised in Springfield, Virginia. His parents separated when the boy was six years old and Dave stayed to live with his mother. David started taking guitar lessons when he was twelve. He soon got bored from the lessons, but not from the playing guitar itself. He continued to practice privately and together with his friends. Grohl became familiar with punk rock style at the age of 13, when his cousin Tracy took Dave and his sister to see Naked Raygun in Illinois. Since then both Dave and his little sis fell in love with this music genre, its influence was felt in the later works of Dave.
Dave started his professional career with the band Scream when he was still only seventeen. During the audition for the vacant place of the drummer Grohl had hidden his real age and claimed he was 20 year old. Unexpectedly for Dave himself, he was chosen by the band. He spent the next few years touring all over the States and even recorded a couple of albums. Not surprisingly all this rock-star lifestyle soon resulted in Dave being kicked out of school. In one of his recent interviews Grohl claimed he had never regretted choosing his music career over the school. Judging from the current Dave Grohl net worth there is actually nothing to regret.
During one of the tours with Scream Dave has met his future band mates Krist Novoselic and Curt Cobain. After the Scream broke up fallowing the departure of one of its members Dave remembered this acquisition and called Curt.
Luckily, at the time Nirvana was looking for the drum player and Grohl joined the band. Soon the group released its second album Nevermind. The album was more successful than anyone could have hoped and turned its members into the most wanted rock stars over one night. During the years with the band the rates of Dave Grohl net worth growth exceeded his best expectations. He stayed with Nirvana right until April 1994, when Curt Cobain was found dead in his apartment. After this tragedy Dave left the band and formed Foo Fighters. He remains with this band to this day and is currently preparing a new album that will boost his net worth with yet another million or a few.
