What were you doing in 1987 and what were you wearing?
"I joined a punk rock band called The Scream and was doing my first tour of America in a beat-up van with six other guys. It was amazing. I was 18 and had never been past Chicago. I wasn’t too different to now - in 1987 I think I stopped maturing."

What’s the story behind the haircut?
"It was too long. It was time for me to become a man. It’s the same haircut that I had when I was 15."

(Dave Grohl, Sky magazine, 1997)
