Dave Grohl has released the first audio version of his Dave’s True Stories series, and it sees the Foo Fighters frontman coming to the defence of teachers.
The clip sees Grohl defending teachers amid the “daunting and evermore politicized question of reopening our schools in the coronavirus pandemic.” Throughout the audio clip Grohl recounts his own experience as a student in Virginia before he dropped out of high school to pursue a career as a rock star.
“To this day, I’m haunted by a reoccurring dream that I’m back in those crowded hallways, now struggling to graduate as a 51-year-old man, and anxiously wake in a pool of my own sweat,” Grohl explains. So, with me being a high school dropout, you’d imagine the current debate surrounding the reopening of schools wouldn’t register so much a blip on my rock & roll radar, right? Wrong. My mother was a public school teacher.”
