Dave Grohl Foo Fighters

Dave Grohl has revealed that there will be a second season of ‘Sonic Highways’. The Foo Fighters frontman confirmed in a video interview with the NME that the band will be returning for another series of the well-received HBO documentaries.

A picture taken by guitarist Chris Shiflett on Instagram, of an aeroplane embossed with the word 'Sonic Highways' and the band's logo, had caused fans to speculate about another series - and so it has come to pass. However, 46 year old Grohl remained evasive on the setting for the new series. “It might or might not be international. It might someday be international. It might only be England, or be England and other places, or maybe it’s places in America and people from other countries that are inspired by these places in America.”

Many years before he reached his current rock-god status, a teenage Dave Grohl was just an ordinary schoolboy, writing cheerfully to his idol, just like everyone else.

Cobain: Montage Of Heck Trailer


Kurt Cobain was trapped in a troubled homelife as a child with his parents having divorced, and it wasn't long before he embarked on a tragic path of self-destruction. Deliberately rebellious as a teenager with a lot of pent up anger and frustration, Cobain's creative talents were obvious to those who knew him as he'd constantly be working on songwriting or artwork. The fame of his grunge pioneer band Nirvana brought a lot of dangerous issues including drug use, and it took its toll on his relationship with Courtney Love, with whom he bore a child. It seemed he was happy to be building a family of his own, but his sudden suicide at the age of 27 was not unforeseen for a musician so determined to bring peace to his own mind.

Who Is Jordyn Blum? Wife Of Foo Fighter's Frontman Dave Grohl


Dave Grohl Foo Fighters Nirvana Phil Collins Ringo Starr

As the animalistic drummer in Nirvana and the guitar-thrashing frontman in Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl is one of the most well-known and prolific rockstars on the planet. Having survived the grunge era with one of the defining bands on the nineties and achieved equal commercial success in the Foos, Grohl has successfully secured a place in the pantheon of rock. He is, by all means, a true rock God with his screaming vocals and continual head banging. But it is easy to forget, that the man who used to destroy drum kits on a nightly basis, a chap who barely bats an eyelid at the prospect of playing to tens of thousands of people, is also a father and a husband. But who is the woman who managed to tame this punk-addled wild man?
