Dave Grohl is the real deal and lives and loves Rock and Roll. After winning BEST ROCK VIDEO at a recent MTV Video Music Awards with his band, FOO FIGHTERS, Dave said in his acceptance speech, "I just want to say: Never lose faith in real rock and roll music, you know what I mean? Never lose faith in that. You might have to look a little harder, but it's always going to be there."

Grohl was the drummer and a integral member of Nirvana; the band that ushered alternative rock into the mainstream in 1991. While in recent years he has been best known as the front man and guitarist for the Grammy winning FOO FIGHTERS, he is still a drumming icon for those who love hard hitting drummers that play for the music, the song, and the band. Dave has also lent his drumming talents to other popular artists such as Queens of the Stoneage, Probot, Tenacious D and Them Crooked Vultures.
