Where Does Dave Grohl Live And How Big Is His House?

Dave Grohl has played in more than one major band. He's, like, double famous or something. He first reached his fame as the drummer for the hit grunge band Nirvana, where he played behind the infamous Kurt Cobain. If that wasn't enough of a ticket to fame, Grohl would form his own band, the Foo Fighters, in 1994. We all know about Nirvana's wild success and their tragic history, but Foo Fighters has climbed nearly as high.

Foo Fighters have more platinum albums than most of the bands touring today, and they've won enough awards that we'd bore you to death if we tried to list them all. You might not think that album sales — and the Foo Fighters have sold about 30 million albums worldwide, per the Telegraph —have much to do with a rockstar's house, but sales equal money. And with money, anything is possible. So, what do you think? Is Grohl living the lavish life of the rich and famous, or a simpler life in a family home? The answer has changed over time.

Just like Neil Young, Dave Grohl is camped out in Hawaii

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl seems to switch houses fairly often. It became kind of a big thing when the world found out how simply the rockstar lived at the time his biography, This Is a Call (written by Paul Brannigan), was published in 2011. At the time, Grohl lived in a four-bedroom villa in Encino, California, a much different lifestyle than the rock idols he often shared a stage with, per Pop Matters. Following that, he had a fairly small beachfront property in Oxnard, but seeing the waves from his yard was certainly a step up. Since then, he's gone way past simple.

As of now, according to an interview the former Nirvana drummer did with Condé Nast Traveller, Grohl is riding out the pandemic with his mother, sister, wife, and children at his home in Hawaii. The picture of his home from the interview makes it look pretty big to us peasant folk, but being on an island during a worldwide pandemic has made it difficult for anyone to have a look inside. Though, Grohl has been hosting live storytelling from his home to help fans through these quarantining times, according to WGRD.

Apparently, Grohl picked the waterfront island home because of the neighbors. "When I heard Neil Young had a house here, I had to have one, too," Grohl tells Condé Nast Traveller. So much for simple living.
