★ROCK STAR MONDAY★: DAVE GROHL   Let me take you back to the late 80s/early 90s and a band called Nirvana, and fast forward to the mid 90s to a band called the Foo Fighters. In between, you'll find Dave Grohl. In his younger years, Grohl was influenced by Edgar Winter's 'Frankenstein'. It wasn't until he visited his cousin Tracy in Chicago at age 13 that he went punk. At the age of 15 he became the guitarist for punk band Freak Baby, and never looked back. When the band lost their drummer, Grohl stepped in and taught himself how to play. He drummed with them for a couple of years and at age 17 he auditioned for local DC band, Scream. He lied & said he was 20, got hired and left on tour to Europe, never looking back.   Come As You Are It really wouldn't do you any good to come as somebody else, would it? There may have been a time in...
