Dave Grohl Signs To Univeral Publishing
Universal Music Publishing Group announced today the signing of Dave Grohl to an exclusive, worldwide co-publishing deal.
As founder and leader of the globally multi-platinum and multiple Grammy winning Foo Fighters, from his work as Nirvana drummer, to stand-in drummer for Queens Of The Stone Age, Tenacious D., Killing Joke and (most recently) Nine Inch Nails, to multi-instrumentalist ringleader of his heavy metal Probot side project, to holding his own alongside Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello, co-fronting the 2003 Grammy tribute to Joe Strummer, Grohl has applied his Midas touch to every project he's ever undertaken.
Dave Grohl's Foo Fighters and Probot families both have cause for celebration, as Foo Fighters "One By One" was named Best Rock Album at the 46th Annual Grammy Awards (the second Foo Fighters LP in a row to do so), and Probot's eponymous underground metal all-star opus was hailed as "The Year's First Great Metal Album" by Rolling Stone magazine.
"One By One" is the second consecutive Foo Fighters record to receive the Best Rock Album Grammy; the band's previous "There is Nothing Left to Lose" took the same statuette home in 2000. The Foo have four Grammys overall as the "One By One's" "All My Life" single took Best Hard Rock Performance honors and their "Learn To Fly" video won the 2000 Short From Music Video Grammy.
Commented David Renzer, Worldwide President, Universal Music Publishing Group: "Dave Grohl has long been at the forefront of rock whether as a member of Nirvana and now leading the hugely successful Foo Fighters, as well as his various other projects. We are honored that he has entrusted UMPG to be his worldwide publisher."
Managed by John Silva of SAM/Silva Artist Management, Grohl joins UMPG's successful roster, which includes Beastie Boys, U2, Prince, Paul Simon, 50 Cent, Blink-182, Shania Twain, and No Doubt (among many others).
