10 People Who Are Not Dave Grohl

10 People Who Are Not Dave Grohl


Posted 2023-12-05 by Jennifer Muirheadfollow
None of these people are David Eric Grohl, better known as Dave Grohl, the lead singer of the band Foo Fighters and former drummer of the grunge band Nirvana.

1. David Groh

David Groh, on the right.

Oh, I see what happened there. That is not Dave Grohl. That is David Groh, the American actor from the 70s TV series, Rhoda. I wonder if he ever gets fan mail that was meant for Dave Grohl. Or the other way around. Maybe Dave Grohl gets tear-stained letters from Rhoda fans asking whether there's any chance there might be a reboot since these days all the old shows seem to be getting one. If there's going to be new Thundercats and Harry Potter, why not Rhoda?

Okay, he's a white guy with a beard, but he is not Dave Grohl. This is Alexy Pajitnov, the Russian computer engineer and creator of Tetris. I wonder whether Dave Grohl is into Tetris.

Well, that is at least a Dave, but he is not Dave Grohl. That is British writer, comedian and actor, Dave Gorman.

4. Kevin Bacon

That's acclaimed Hollywood actor, Kevin Bacon. Well, apparently Dave Grohl has a Bacon number of 2 , so in a way you're kind of close. In another way you are not close at all. One is a musician who sometimes acts, and the other is an actor who sometimes sings and dances. And Dave Grohl wasn't in The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special .

5 Olivia Colman

What?! Are you even trying? That is not Dave Grohl. That is Oscar award winner Olivia Colman. She was in Doctor Who. Dave Grohl has never been in Doctor Who, although he was in an episode of The X Files in 1996, so maybe that was where you got confused somehow?

Oscar award winner, Olivia Colman, is not to be confused with Oscar Award Winner Olivia Colman, the lizard in the excellent teen revenge comedy Do Revenge . Setting aside the question of whether or not lizards are people for another day, she is definitely not Dave Grohl.

Fay the lizard as Oscar Award Winner Olivia Colman.]

6. Rami Jaffee

Much warmer! That is Rami Jaffee, the keyboardist of the Foo Fighters. He even looks a bit like Dave. Okay, look around and see if you can spot Dave standing near him. He'll be the one singing.

7 ?

Not Dave Grohl

What? Who is that? Well, it's not Dave Grohl, whoever it is.

8. Janelle Monae

And that is the American singer, songwriter, actress and rapper, Janelle Monae. I mean, she's cool and all, but I think you know as well as I do that she's not Dave Grohl. Dave Grohl probably wishes he had her moves. Also, her birthday is in December , while Dave Grohl's is in January .

9. Kevin Bacon

And that's just Kevin Bacon again. He has different hair, but he's still not Dave Grohl.

10. Henry VIII

That is Henry VIII, who was the king of England from the 22nd of April, 1509 until he died in 1547. He does have a beard, and supposedly he did compose some songs, but there the similarities end. I give up. You can find Dave Grohl on your own time.
