Dave Grohl's Teacher Tales


Dave Grohl may be a high school dropout, but he can sure tell a story. Posting a monologue in tribute to teachers, he reveals how he was one of those students for whom school was an eternal cinder block prison with a clock that inched ahead in a torturous super slo mo. In his autobiography, he explains that he and his school teacher Mom had a heart to heart during which he explained how fruitless school was as opposed to his passion for music. She realized he should follow that path, and looking back, it had to be hard but was a shrewd call on her part. Dave is undeniably a person created to be on a stage. He confesses, he's no good as a teacher to his own now home schooled daughters, but has enormous respect for the job teachers are facing in the Fall. Check it out.
