Dave was 12 when he got his first guitar, but soon became tired of his guitar teacher and started teaching himself – he joined his first band while still attending elementary school.

After Kurt Cobain heard his song “Alone + Easy Target”, he actually kissed Dave for doing an awesome job. Nirvana disbanded after Kurt killed himself with a shotgun on 5 April 1994.
In July 1995, Dave released the album “Foo Fighters” with the eponymous band he’d founded a year before, and in May 1997, his second album came out entitled “The Colour and the Shape”. His third album, “There Is Nothing Left to Lose” was released on 2 November 1999. The band has been performing and making music to this day, and its net worth has been estimated at over $30 million.
