David Eric Grohl (born January 14, 1969) is an American musician, singer, songwriter and director. He is known for being the longest-serving drummer for Nirvana from late 1990 to early 1994. When Nirvana disbanded following the suicide of Kurt Cobain he became the founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and primary songwriter of the rock band Foo Fighters. Grohl is also the drummer and co-founder of the rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, and wrote the music and performed all the instruments for his short-lived side projects Late! and Probot. He has also recorded and toured with Queens of the Stone Age. Grohl established himself as a highly appreciated drummer with Nirvana and in 2014 was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside bandmates Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic in the group's first year of eligibility. In 2010, Grohl was described by Ken Micallef, co-author of the book Classic Rock Drummers, as one of the most influential rock musicians of the previous 20 years.
