Courtney Love even wants a piece of the spotlight, here she is on Jimmy Kimmel Live talking about her old pal Dave:
For the first time in 19 years, Dave Grohl is on the cover of Rolling Stone.
Here are 5 revelations we learn about the fabulous frontman from Rolling Stone’s David Fricke:
Grohl offered a peek into his life when he’s done with a day of “daddy duty.”
The frontman is the father of three daughters, for whom he wakes up at 5:45 a.m. to make breakfast and snack packs. Grohl likes to unwind in his home studio. “I’ve done three-quarters of a bottle of wine, and I’m in my underwear, totally rockin’ these riffs all night,” he said.
The singer found a unique way to deal with his frustrations as a child.
Grohl’s parents split when he was 6 years old. To cope, he would record himself speaking into a cassette about his problems and fears each day and fall asleep listening to the tape. “I started to find this kind of safe place where I only had to rely on myself to survive emotionally,” he said.
The Foo Fighters frontman knows the limits of his addictions.
Grohl said that his 1965 Ford Falcon van was his latest indulgence, having stopped doing acid, mushrooms and weed when he was 20. “To this day, I have never done cocaine, because I know me,” he said. “Never tried heroin. Pills are lame. I like wine. I’m the fun drunk. You know I’m wasted when I shut up.”
Grohl already has a plan for the next Foo Fighters record.
“I don’t think anyone’s ever done it,” he said. “And it’s fucking cool. It will blow everybody’s mind. Nobody has the balls to do it. And that’s three years away.”
