Dave Grohl on Touring in a Van, Interviewing Rock Stars & Performing with His Daughter


Dave talks about being very busy during quarantine, interviewing a bunch of rock stars like Steven Tyler, Ringo Starr & The Edge for his new documentary What Drives Us, driving the Foo Fighters around in a van, falling in love with classic rock, learning that The Beatles farted, his friendship with Ringo, finding out he is related to the drummer from X, performing with his 15-year-old daughter Violet, and making a documentary series called From Cradle to Stage with his mom.

    Best rockstar ever! Grohl has recorded with some of the most iconic superstars in rock, but he seems to be just a regular down-to-earth guy who drives a sh#!**y van.

    Man, had to pause at the 5:15 mark. Yes! Touring is sooooooo hard! My bands 1st tour. We didnt even have a trailer. Just a SUV. Sleep sitting straight up in ur seat. That was a summer one so it was that bad. Winter, snow.... fir a band from Orlando FL... lmafo. Its worth it, its soooo hard on you though. Check in times are important at the gigs. Headline n finish n leave at about 2-3am.... gotta check in at 3 pm if not earlier... a state away, maybe 2. Miss check in n you could be taken off... even it being your tour n you headlining the show! Lmao

    Jimmy's man-crush is Dave Grohl. Back in March, I got v e r y uncomfortable with Jimmy's borderline-sexual comments to Dave and especially his tone of voice. I kept thinking, WHOA, Jimmy is precariously balancing on the line of being inappropriate in a "business" environment. Dave seemed a bit confused, but he played it off and handled the awkward statements beautifully.

    it's funny, because in Nirvana, Dave hardly ever spoke in public - it was mostly Kurt and I've read about and watched interviews about this perspective - I get it, but now, you can't get him to shut up, which is a lotta' fun, because he's a great storyteller

    Like all you, I love & respect Dave. I was friends with X in 1979-1981. Never missed a show. Flew to NYC cuz so proud excited they were booked there alongside Go Go's. Sure I saw Germs, Black Flag, Plugs, Alley Cats, & every other but X was it for me. Thought for sure they'd rise to super stardom especially after Manzarek's attachment. Just recently after 40 yrs randomly cyber met 2 rock solid Denim Co. dudes who happen to currently be good friends of John's. That Dave's related to Don Bonebrake is just further evidence that Grohl is a supreme being that's either connected to everyone or connects everyone. One of the greatest, sweetest that's ever walked the earth. Or drove a van around it. But with all this due, I'd like to find out why Dave, Noviselic & Violet cover it vs X? Dave has real-world integrity so I'm guessing X didn't want to perform Nausea themselves. Stay living everyone.

    I've heard for long time that Dave Grohl is one of the nicest men in rock, up to and including him releasing a Foo Fighters album at a low price as an apology because he didn't think the previous one was as good as it could have been. This cuddly bear is the same guy responsible for the ferocious drum assault on every Nirvana record. Dude has range.
