Jordyn Blum’s Husband, Dave Grohl – Biography
David Eric Grohl was born on 14 January 1969, in Warren, Ohio, USA, of German, Slovak and Irish ancestry, the son of James Harper Grohl, a news writer, and Virginia Jean, a teacher. Dave moved to Springfield, Virginia as a child with his family, but his parents divorced when he was just seven years old, and from then on he was raised by his mother.
He became interested in music at an early age, and when 12 years old he started learning to play the guitar. He attended several high schools, including Annandale High School, but never actually matriculated.
After a while, he left the guitar and began playing drums on his own, never learning notes and only playing by ear.
While in high school, Dave was a member of several bands, and he eventually became the drummer for the legendary punk rock band Scream, following the departure of Kent Stax. He lied about his age, and left school in junior year to tour with the band, also recording two studio albums – “No More Censorship” and “Fumble”.
Scream soon disbanded, and through Buzz Osborne, Dave met Krist Novoselic and Kurt Cobain from Nirvana, whom he then joined for the recording of their second studio album, “Nevermind” (1991), which was released to both critical and commercial success. He remained with Nirvana until Cobain’s suicide in 1994, recording one more studio album, “In Utero” in 1993.
Following Nirvana’s demise, Dave recorded a solo album under the pseudonym Foo Fighters, which ultimately became a full band, adding Nate Mendel on bass, drummer William Goldsmith, and Pat Smear on guitar.
The band’s self-titled debut album came out in 1995, and eventually achieved platinum status. Before the decade ended, the band released two more albums, “The Color and the Shape” (1997) and “There Is Nothing Left to Lose” (1999), to critical and commercial success, the latter winning a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. Foo Fighters continued to dominate the rock scene with such albums as “One by One” (2002), which won them their second Grammy Award, “In Your Honor” (2005), then “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace” (2007), which spawned such hits as “The Pretender”, “Let It Die”, and “Long Road to Ruin”, among others. “Wasting Light” in 2011 became their first album to top the Billboard 200 chart, plus earning platinum certification, and winning four Grammy Awards.
They have continued to make new music, and in 2014, released the album “Sonic Highways”, then “Concrete and Gold” (2017), their second No. 1 album, and most recently released “Medicine at Midnight” in 2021.
The band’s drummer, Taylor Hawkins, died on 25 March 2022 in his room at the Casa Medina hotel in Bogota, Columbia. This unfortunate event had the band cancel their remaining tour days for 2022.
In addition to being a frontman of Foo Fighters, Dave has worked with several other musicians and bands, including Tenacious D on their albums “Tenacious D” (2001), “Pick of Destiny” (2006), and “Post-Apocalypto” (2018), also with Queens of the Stone Age on their albums “Songs for the Deaf” (2002), and “…Like Clockwork” (2013).
Furthermore, in 2018 he recorded and released his solo album “Play”.
As of mid- 2022, Dave Grohl’s net worth has been estimated to be around $320 million, earned through his successful career as a musician, a stunning figure which marks him one of the wealthiest drummers, second only to Ringo Starr, whose wealth is estimated at $350 million.
When it comes to his personal life, prior to meeting Jordyn, Dave has one failed marriage behind him.
In 1994 he married photographer Jennifer Leigh Youngblood, however, their marriage lasted only until December 1996 when they separated, and officially divorced in 1997.
Grohl has been experiencing progressive hearing loss for more than 20 years, stating that this is due to decades of performing on stage. Over time he has become adept at lip-reading, but in recent years he has trouble due to people wearing face masks., which has impacted both his professional and daily life, but he’s still refused to seek medical help.
