David Eric Grohl was born on January 14, 1969 in Warren, Ohio, the son of teacher Virginia Jean and newswriter James Harper Grohl (1938–2014).

In addition to being an award-winning journalist, James had also served as the special assistant to Sen. Robert Taft Jr. and was described as “a talented political observer who possessed the ability to call every major election with uncanny accuracy”.

Grohl is of German, Irish, and Slovak descent. When he was a child, Grohl’s family moved to Springfield, Virginia. When Grohl was seven, his parents divorced and he subsequently grew up with his mother. So at the age of 12, he began learning to play guitar. He grew tired of lessons and instead taught himself, and he eventually began playing in bands with friends.

During his developing years as a drummer, Grohl cited John Bonham as his greatest influence, and eventually had Bonham’s three-rings symbol tattooed on his wrist.

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
