In a recent installment of TIME magazine’s ’10 Questions’ column, Foo Fighters frontman and founder Dave Grohl said that becoming a father has left an indelible mark on his approach to making music. Most notably, of course, is the lifestyle change since welcoming Violet Maye, 3 ½, and Harper Willow, 9 months.

“I used to tour nine months out of the year,” he notes. “Now I don’t like being away from my kids for more than 12 days.”

“It’s changed everything that I do,” Dave, 41, continues.

Violet and Harper are Dave’s children with wife Jordyn Blum Grohl, whom he married in 2003. The Foo Fighters Greatest Hits album is available now.
