This Wednesday (November 25th) Dave not only graces Q’s cover but issue 194 of Mojo also hits the shelves with an exclusive cover interview.

Grohl relates how “a little vandal from the middle of nowhere” became one of America’s biggest rock stars, surviving hunger and penury in America’s hardcore punk rock underground, then the strain and turmoil of mega-fame as the drummer in grunge gods Nirvana. His memories of doomed Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain are particularly poignant.

“What do you think of when you think of Kurt?” he asks Mojo. “You think of a rock star that killed himself because of this guilt of being a rock star. When I think of Kurt I think of the way he giggled, or how he loved ABBA, or him saying, ‘God, man, I wish I could wear sweatpants.'”

Grohl has a reputation for affability that sometimes obscures the grit in his story. But in MOJO’s interview, he’s honest about the crises he’s endured as a frontman, notably the tensions in the Foo Fighters that nearly called time on the band between 2001 and 2002, including a fight in Hollywood’s Conway Studios during sessions for fourth album, *One By One, and the meaningful absence of Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins from Grohl’s debut show as temporary drummer with QOTSA.

“That really hurt me,” Grohl tells MOJO. “Taylor was my best friend. It was like him not turning up to my wedding.”

Taylor, Homme, Foo Fighter Nate Mendel, former Scream bandmate Pete Stahl, hardcore patriarch Ian Mackaye and Grohl admirer Tom Petty are among the thoughtful contributors to MOJO’s revealing profile, on sale now.

And from the looks of things, you’ll be able to choose from three background colours:
