Watch Dave Grohl Welcome New Foo Fighters Member To Band


Dave Grohl’s daughter Violet Grohl joined Foo Fighters’ live band for their performance in Toronto on Thursday. Watch the adorable videos below.

Grohl’s daughter Violet is a teen, and Dave discussed booking his first show as a teen in a new Uproxx interview.

“You know, it’s funny. I think the first time that I booked a show, I was 16 or 17 years old in a Washingon DC hardcore band in the ’80s. You’d go an find a VFW hall or community event center and rent it out for the night and rent out a guy with a PA and get a security dude and then call up your friends’ bands and say ‘let’s do a show.’ We’d charge $4 at the door and put fliers all over the city and cross our fingers that people would show up. It’s not that different nowadays, it’s just on a much different scale.

The idea of community has always been important to me because of the Washington DC music scene. Everyone was always generous and helpful to each other. If someone needed a snare drum, you gave them a snare drum. If someone needed to borrow your van, you let them borrow your van. If someone wanted to open up for your band, then you let them open up for your band. That’s always affected me, because the more love, the better the music. When you’re at a show and you’re surrounded by your friends and everyone’s walking on stage with a smile on their face and a beer in their hand, it’s going to be a good f*cking show.”
