Dave Grohl Believes In His Daughter For Creating New Revolution Like Nirvana

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl joined an interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber and talked about bringing new approaches to the music. Grohl claimed that his daughter, Violet, could revolutionize the whole genre with her style while sharing his ideas about the next Nirvana.

Following his short-lived marriage with photographer Jennifer Leigh Youngblood, Dave Grohl tied the knot with Jordyn Blum in 2003. The happily married couple has three children; Violet Maye, Harper Willow, and Ophelia Saint. The musician’s eldest daughter Violet has followed her father’s steps for a while by showing her unmatchable vocal talent on different occasions.

The fans realized this situation, especially when they watched her performing American punk rock band X’s famous song Nausea‘ from their debut studio album ‘Los Angeles’ at 2021’s Lollapalooza Festival. Almost every attendee was surprised by her voice and singing, and most of them said she would be a successful musician shortly. Then, Violet’s Joni Mitchell tribute for the MusiCares Person of the Year gala greatly appreciated.

In addition, the famous drummer highlighted that as a longtime band member, it’s not his job anymore to set the general trends and revolutionize the music. However, according to Grohl, his daughter can be an essential figure in a revolutionary act by defining her as a punk rock Joni Mitchell. The Foo Fighters frontman believes that her generation’s change and growth can also form the next Nirvana if they are given enough chance and waited patiently.

Grohl stated in his interview that:

“I don’t feel like it’s our job as a band to create any revolution. It’s to bring everyone together. It’s my daughter’s job to create that next revolution, and I think she will. I’m still banking on the future when it comes to the next Nirvana. She looks like a punk rock kid who listens to Joni Mitchell. So it’s kind of like a punk rock Joni Mitchell.

When I see that, what I see is this mutation, this change, this growth and progression that her generation, they’re the rock stars now. It’s not old guys like me. It’s not people like Kanye. It’s that generation. Give it five or ten years, give it three or four years, and you’ll see how this mutation is happening.”
