Johnny Park was a friend of Dave's when he was younger. He's now a real estate agent in Washington

True story.

dave said and i quote..
"The only reason why it's called 'Hey, Johnny Park!' is because when I was young, my best friend was this kid who lived across the street from me called Johnny Park and we were like brothers from the age of 5 to 12. I haven't heard from him since I was about 14 years old and I thought if I named a song after him he might call."



thank you dave grohl biography book thingy.

Damn straight, I would've lol.

I object against people writing their biographies before they are retired or are at an old age.

It's odd. For example footballer John terry is 24 and he has a biography out.

dave didnt write it. it was written abouyt him, hence it being a biography, not an AUTObiography. dave dosnt want to write one.

An autobiography is a biography of a person written by that person.

I don't agree with dave there. He's had a very eventful life. A biography would be very interesting... not big headed

Maybe when he's an old geezer and needs Nate to change his nappies for him he might change his mind.
