Read this: Dave Grohl on growing up in NoVa; Chris Cooley makes pottery

Chris Richards indulges Grohl’s Northern Virginia nostalgia, and he in turn indulges our fascination with the Bishop Ireton/Thomas Jefferson/Annandale dropout (yes, everyone who says they went to high school with Dave Grohl really did) who made history with Nirvana.

Can’t get enough? Here are outtakes from Grohl’s interview (memories of cranking Gerry Rafferty on the shores of Pohick Bay) and photos of Dave Grohl through the years.
