Before there was this Dave…There was couch surfing Dave
Dave Grohl is a good dude. Funny, successful and on the whole in his career just killing it.

:NAME DROP OVER…RETURN TO STORY:
Cool as he may be now…It wasn’t always that way.
Dave was couch surfing Dave making a few bucks drumming, slumming from couch to couch and if he was lucky eating Taco Bell.
In a new interview with The Guardian, the Foo Fighters frontman reveals that he never sought to make a career out of being a musician.
He was just there for living the experience.
The cash from drumming for the band Scream was pretty sad Grohl says,
“I started touring at 18: carrying my stuff in a bag, sleeping on floors, and if I was lucky, I’d get seven dollars a day to budget on cigarettes and Taco Bell.”
Grohl also says that his original five-year plan was to become a studio drummer and take up graphic design.
But then a couple of other bands happened…like Nirvana.
