The lead singer of the Foo Fighters and drummer of Them Crooked Vultures is afraid of giving the wrong impression, so he wears a short wig when he interviews with school administrators!
Dave Grohl might be one of the biggest rock stars on the planet, but first and foremost, he’s a doting dad. The rocker says he’s willing to dress up and make himself appear clean-cut so that his daughter can get into the right preschool! “Right after this interview we’re visiting a local preschool we want our daughter to go to,” he told British newspaper The Sun. “So I’ve got to tidy up to assure them that I’m not like Alice Cooper or something like that. I have a short hair wig I put on — I call it my business wig — and a tie. The whole look is great.”
The 41-year-old and his wife, Jordyn, 33, have two daughters, Violet Maye is 4 and Harper Willow is 1, and as much as he enjoys being a rock star, it’s his role as a dad that makes him the happiest. “I love my kids. They’re hilarious. I can’t wait to get them up out of bed and get them going to school for the day.”
With his band the Foo Fighters recording their seventh album in his garage, it makes things a lot easier when it comes to child-rearing. “But the good thing about making an album in the house is come 6:30 in the evening the kids are having dinner and I get to be there and give them baths and read them stories before they go to bed. Once they go to bed I can go back to the garage and keep on trucking.”
The band’s new album is expected to be released around Christmas, and Dave and the boys are planning a big tour next year. We can hardly wait!
