Dave Grohl is one of the most incredible musicians alive. He can do it all and with ease. There doesn’t seem to be an instrument out there that he can’t play. In all, he has 39 Grammy Award nominations and 16 wins in his career. He is a one-of-a-kind musician.
Moreover, his eldest daughter is taking after her dad. Violet Grohl and Dave Grohl are performing together now, and the long-time artist is loving it.
On April 27, he sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to talk about his latest goings-on. He shared how he is touring around in his van, among other things.
More importantly, Dave Grohl talked about playing music with his daughter, Violet. He said that he is incredibly proud of where she is in her music right now. He also added that it is an amazing feeling to perform with her.
Dave Grohl Shared a Sweet Story About Performing a Song With His Oldest Daughter – Violet
He prefaced the story about performing the song with his daughter with a short story. He talked about a distant relative who was also making incredible music. Dave Grohl said that he was not shocked to learn that music runs in the family. And to that end, he hopes that it continues to do so with his immediate offspring.
Dave Grohl talked about convincing his daughter to perform with him. The story is a classic tale of a teenage kid stubbornly agreeing to participate in something their parent wants them to do. Nonetheless, Violet agreed to perform a punk rock song with her dad.
But, after initially acting like it would be terrible to perform with her dad, she came around. As Dave Grohl says, “At 9 o’clock at night, she texts me and is like, ‘Oh my God! Let’s do it right now!’ So, I ran up to my little home studio in my office, and I recorded the instrumental, did the bass, drums, guitar, and stuff in like 20 minutes. Then she came up and sang it.”
While he probably doesn’t put much stock into how wild it is for him to put together four instrument lines in twenty minutes, that is outstanding. Even though he has been doing it for his whole life, it goes to show what an incredible artist he is.
However, he carried on explaining what it was like to make a song with his daughter. In the video, it is certainly evident that he is a little emotional. He almost seems to lose his train of thought as he talks about Violet.
“It’s the first time she and I have recorded together – just the two of us,” Dave Grohl explained. “I’m so proud of it because I love her very much, and she’s an amazing singer.”
