Dave Grohl became estranged from his father when he chose to be a musician.

The 52-year-old star recalled that his deceased news writer’s father, James Groll, “did not allow” to become a rock star because he had failed at school.

To promote his new memoir “The Storyteller: Tales Of Life And Music” at the Savoy Theater in London this week, he said: “When my parents divorced, I discovered music. I learned to play the drums.

“I even tried to be a promoter. I couldn’t play music because of my poor grades. My dad said,” Don’t call yourself a musician just because you play an instrument. ” rice field.

“So I wasn’t allowed to be a musician. I had a painfully annoying conversation about what I was trying to do in my life. I don’t know what to say. But I knew this was it. I wrote a runaway note. This started the separation between my dad and me.

“He called me the next morning and said,’Don’t do it again,’ and I said,’I don’t have to.'”

The Foo Fighters frontman also showed how he joined the late Grange legends Kurt Cobain and Nirvana when he had to distribute to three “American dogs” a day. I remembered if it was broken.

He said: “There was no food. There was a gas station across the road selling three corn dogs for 99 cents. I learned to budget for three corn dogs a day. I wrote songs every day. Kurt was very prolific. “

Kurt committed suicide in 1994 at the age of 27, and Dave admitted that he was so “insensitive” that he could not listen to music, let alone play an instrument.

He admits that: “When Kurt died, I got lost. I was completely numb. I turned off the radio, put away the instruments, and couldn’t stand it. I had to disappear and run away. . “

The “Learn to Fly” hit maker formed the Foo Fighters shortly after the dissolution of Nirvana (including Krist Novoselic), admitting that the group saved his life.

Dave added: “I chose 15 of my favorite songs I wrote and recorded. I called them Foo Fighters because I wanted them to think of me as a band. I distributed them to 100 people. And I think this is it. I thought. This is what saves my life. “
