How did Dave Grohl and Jordyn Blum Met Each Other?
Dave Grohl was married to Jennifer Youngblood before he met Jordyn Blum. But the couple got divorced in 1997. In 2001 Grohl and Blum met each other almost as any ordinary couple. One night Dave Grohl went out with his fellow bandmate Taylor Hawkins to the Sunset Marquis hotel in Los Angeles to help him with his planned date.
Jordyn Blum casually came up there as a friend of Hawkin’s date. Grohl was so nervous to talk to her that he ended up getting too drunk to go and speak to her. He was so drunk that he scribbled his number on a piece of paper and added, “you’re my future ex-wife.” The two started hitting immediately and got married after two years on August 2, 2003. It was a private ceremony attended only by their close friends and family. The couple then had three daughters Violet Maye Grohl on April 15, 2006, Harper Willow Grohl on April 17, 2009, and Ophelia Saint Grohl on August 1, 2014.
Recently Dave Grohl has been going through a rough patch in life. He has been grieving over the loss of his best friend and bandmate Taylor Hawkins and suffering from a hearing loss problem, which is a severe issue for any musician. In a recent interview, he called himself deaf due to playing loud music with no protection for his ears. Luckily he has a supportive family by his side. In terms of career, Jordyn Blum has helped him a lot to stay grounded. On several occasions, Grohl made it clear that he cares more about his family than anything else. He admitted that he could stand on the road for a week because he adores his family. Besides, Grohl’s first daughter also sang the chorus of Making A Fire by Foo Fighters following in the father’s footsteps. As his ardent fans, we can only hope that he gets better and keeps winning the hearts with his performances.
