Dave Grohl reveals the job he would have if he wasn’t a musician

Dave Grohl was interviewed by American singer-songwriter Tim Montana through the CMT website. In this interview, Dave revealed in what he would work on if he wasn’t a musician. He also told a funny story about Tim Montana himself (Dave’s friend) trying to “fight” him once in a restaurant.


Tim: If you weren’t in music, what do you think you would have done in your life?

Dave: I would like to be a graphic artist.

Tim: Do you make some Foo Fighters shirts?

Dave: No, damn it. Not the shirts we sell … The day I picked up a guitar, I realized I really wanted to be a musician, but I don’t know how to read music and I never had classes to do it, and I thought, “Well, I’m going to play bands and perform. around”.

Dave: I went to work in a furniture warehouse and stuff, but I was happy at this job because I worked all week and then I had my garage band where we were going to do shows and it was a lot of fun.

Dave: Eventually, I even thought that someday I would learn to read drum music with sheet music, become a studio drummer, make money playing music, and then graduate from college to get a real job, you know?

Tim: What do you think would be your real job? Graphic designer?

Dave: When NIRVANA became famous, I didn’t even think about all that shit anymore … I don’t know, I honestly don’t know.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
