Dave Grohl may be a popular super star, yet his house life is much tamer than you would definitely prepare for.
The Foo Fighters frontman and his significant other, Jordyn Blum, have 3 kids– Violet, Harper andOphelia Over the years, he’s shared looks right into his much less rock ‘n’ roll method of living as a devoted dad– from driving a minivan to focusing on Katy Perry with his kids.
In honor of his birthday event, right here are 8 quotes concerning parenting from Grohl.
On How Kids Changed His Life
“I used to tour nine months out of the year. Now I don’t like being away from my kids for more than 12 days. It’s changed everything that I do.”
On How Family Affects His Songwriting
“When you have kids, you see life through different eyes. You feel love more deeply and are maybe a little more compassionate. It’s inevitable that that would make its way into your songwriting.”
On The Reality Of Having Children
“They control everything about our lives now.”
On His Children’s Music Taste
“The worst point [my kids] difficulty me is Katy Perry’s latest cd … Her tunes is a real assessment in concerns to dedication towards your kids.”
On His Morning Dad Routine
“My day starts at about 5:45. So I get up and I get in the shower and I get my act together. And then I gotta get them up out of bed. But then I gotta get the snack packs going. And while I get the snack packs going, they come into the kitchen, and I get the breakfast going. Once they’ve had breakfast, I get them dressed, and they get dressed. And I get the backpacks and the snack packs into my minivan. And then I get them in the minivan, and I sit in traffic for 45 minutes. And then I get them to school, and then I drive 45 minutes back to my house. And then I start my day.”
On Trying To Get His Kids To Like Rock
“I try to brainwash them with Beatles and Rolling Stones and stuff like that but at the end of the day, ‘it’s all about that bass.’”
“When you have a kid it opens up all these new channels of emotion and perspective.”
On His Kids’ Bond With His Bandmates’ Kids
“It’s actually funny for us too when someone comes up to us and another kid will go to their parent, ‘Violet slapped me in the face,’ and the other one goes, ‘She just tripped me,’ and we’re trying to deal with our kids. But we find that it’s a good idea that they form these relationships early because in 25 years when they’re suing each other over our royalties, they have some sort of connection.”
