One of the few musicians to achieve massive success with multiple instruments and bands, Dave Grohl went from Nirvana drummer to Foo Fighters frontman-guitarist-songwriter. Emerging from the fading punk scene of the late-1980s, Grohl joined Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic as their band's latest drummer just prior the recording of Nirvana's <i>Nevermind</i>, an era-defining smash hit that transformed the music industry landscape. In the aftermath of Cobain's tragic suicide in 1994, Grohl made headlines in a very public feud with Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, while privately struggling with his own future as a musician. Finally unleashing his long-gestating aspirations as a singer-songwriter, Grohl picked up the guitar and formed the Foo Fighters, a band that quickly established itself as a hard rock staple and enjoyed a lengthy Grammy-winning run with such albums as <i>The Colour and the Shape</i> and <i>There is Nothing Left to Lose</i>, featuring hits like "Everlong," "Learning to Fly" and "My Hero." Never one to sit on his laurels, Grohl enjoyed a myriad of side projects and musical collaborations, including work with the bands Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures and rock icon Paul McCartney. The accomplished musician even ventured into filmmaking with the L.A. recording scene documentary "Sound City" (2013). Highly respected and immensely liked within the music industry and revered by fans for his part in two of rock's most dynamic bands, Dave Grohl built a long-lasting and influential music career on his own terms, proving that nice guys could indeed finish first.
