Dave Grohl performing with his daughter Violet on Jimmy Kimmel is the ultimate cool-dad moment
Dave Grohl appeared on U.S. TV show Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, on which he performed a cover of LA punks X’s classic Nausea. And, because he’s Dave Grohl, he had mates involved – namely his old Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic, and former Slayer / Mr. Bungle drummer Dave Lombardo.
And, finally, because he’s Dave Grohl, he brought an even more important guest with him: his daughter Violet…
The song comes from the soundtrack to the new Dave-directed movie What Drives Us, released on Friday. “I do not do well on vacation,” he said, when the host pointed out that he’s never not doing anything, even when there’s nothing to do because of COVID.
“It’s the first time she and I have recorded together, just the two of us,” the Foos frontman continued. “I’m so proud of it because I love her very much, and she’s an amazing singer.” When asked if he hoped his daughter would “load up a van with her friends” and head off on tour, he replied, “I hope that she does.”
For the movie, Dave interviewed legends including Lars Ulrich, U2 guitarist The Edge, Beatles drummer Ringo Starr and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler among others, to understand what makes them keep going. On Steven Tyler, Dave joked, “I interviewed him for about two hours 20 minutes. Those 10 minutes of stuff I could actually understand? Solid gold.”
“To see so many women inducted this year is impressive and encouraging,” Dave Grohl enthused of his fellow Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 2021 inductees.
