Dave Grohl (born 14th January 1969)
Dave Grohl is a former member of Seattle grunge band Nirvana and the founder of Foo Fighters.
Net worth: Dave Grohl has a net worth of $260 Million according to Celebrity Net Worth (2013)
Musical career: Dave Grohl started out as a drummer, performing in several bands including Washington DC's Scream before joining Seattle grunge band Nirvana alongside frontman Kurt Cobain. The band's second album 'Nevermind' featuring the likes of 'Smells like teen spirit' and 'Come as you are' became their breakthrough record, seeing them gain recognition across the world. Despite their success, Grohl felt increasingly insignificant in the band's line-up Seemingly destined on a path of destruction, Grohl's demons of fighting with his status in the band grew from early on. While his drumming style was a significant element in the band's success, in his mind Nirvana was the band that recorded Bleach and his arrival had altered that sound dramatically. Reluctant to offer his songwriting talents to the rest of the band, he later release a cassette called 'Pocketwatch' under the alias Late!. 'In Utero' followed for Nirvana in September 1993 and was to be their third and final album release. Dave Grohl again played drums and recorded backing vocals and although apparently the album wasn't a hit with the label, the fans disagreed. Reaching number one in both the UK and US album charts, the album picked up where 'Nevermind' left off, with singles including 'Heart shaped box' and 'All apologies'. On April 5th, 1994 tragedy struck for the band when the pressures of fame took a fatal toll on Nirvana's front man, Kurt Cobain. Committing suicide the band had no option but to go their separate ways. Dave Grohl naturally found himself unsure of what to do after the death of Cobain. Fleeting stints playing with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Pearl Jam ended and Grohl decided to record on his own. After laying down a 15 track demo and wooing attention form Capitol records, Grohl then went on to form the Foo Fighters, a group in which he sings and plays guitar. The bands popularity has grown and The Foo Fighters are now in their own right a globally recognised rock band. With six albums released and a string of hit singles Dave Grohl has made the perceived possible leap career wise after the tragic death of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana.
Personal life: Born in Warren, Ohio, Dave Grohl also grew up in Springfield, Virginia. His parents are teacher Virginia Jean and reporter James Harper Grohl. He began playing guitar in his early teens and got heavily into punk music while attending Thomas Jefferson High School. He was transferred twice, however, due to his minor problems with drugs. He has since become involved with various anti-drug campaigns. In 1994, he married Jennifer Youngblood before divorcing in 1997. Six years later, he tied the knot with Jordyn Blum with whom he had three children Violet Maye, Harper Willow and Ophelia Saint.
Dave Grohl Formed A New Rock Supergroup On Friday Night (22jan16) To Honour Late Motorhead Frontman Lemmy During An Annual Celebration To Remember Tragic Guitar Great 'Dimebag' Darrell Abbott.
The Pantera legend was shot and killed by a crazed fan at a show in Ohio on 8 December, 2004 and his surviving bandmates and famous friends have gathered for the so-called Dimebash event in Los Angeles each year to honour his memory.
Guests at this year's (16) get-together also had another heavy rocker, Lemmy, in their thoughts, following his unexpected death in December (15), and Foo Fighters star Grohl decided to pay tribute to the late Brit with a cover of Motorhead classic Ace of Spades.
Jumping on guitar, he joined forces with Pantera's former frontman Phil Anselmo on vocals, Metallica's Robert Trujillo on bass, and ex-Slayer percussionist Dave Lombardo on drums.

Foo Fighters Frontman Dave Grohl Headed To A Tattoo Parlour In The Hours After Lemmy Kilmister's Death To Ink A Tribute To His Longtime Friend.
The Motorhead star passed away on Monday (28Dec15) just four days after his 70th birthday, devastating his longtime pal Dave, who declared "my heart is broken" in a statement issued via his band's Twitter.com page.
It has now emerged Dave had an Ace of Spades tattoo inked on his wrist on Monday in memory of Lemmy and Motorhead's biggest hit. The tattoo artist who carried out the work posted a picture of Dave's new body art on Instagram.com, and added, "Tattooed #davegrohl from the #foofighters last night hella cool dude (sic)."
Lemmy passed away just two days after he was diagnosed with cancer, and Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee has since declared the band is no more following the death of their frontman, telling Sweden's Expressen newspaper, "Motorhead is over, of course. Lemmy was Motorhead. We won't be doing any more tours or anything. And there won't be any more records. But the brand survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone."
It's been a hilarious year.

Motorhead Have Become The Latest Rock Act To Scrap A Paris Concert Following Friday's (13nov15) Violent Terrorist Attacks On The City.
Fans at an Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan were taken hostage and then slaughtered in the chaos, which resulted in the deaths of over 120 people.
U2 and Foo Fighters immediately cancelled shows in France, with Dave Grohl and his bandmates calling off an entire European tour in the wake of the atrocities. And now Motorhead have pulled the plug at on their Zenith gig on Sunday night (15Nov15).
