The Foo Fighters frontman – who has two daughters, Violet, three, and nine-month-old Harper, with wife Jordyn – admits the songs he writes are a lot more emotional because he has a different outlook on life.

He said: “It’s changed everything that I do. When you have kids, you see life through different eyes. You feel love more deeply and are maybe a little more compassionate. It’s inevitable that that would make its way into your songwriting.”

The 41-year-old rocker also refuses to tour for long periods of time because he hates being away form his family.

He explained to Time magazine: “I used to tour nine months out of the year. Now I don’t like being away from my kids for more than 12 days.”

Although he loves being a dad, Dave has previously admitted Violet’s birth had been the "scariest" moment of his life.

He said: "I went to the birth. I knew the science. I could've f---ing delivered the baby myself at that point. I'd desensitized myself by watching those stupid TV shows with the graphic birth. But I was nervous. It was a sketchy birth because her cord was around her neck and there were a couple of times when her heartbeat dropped. That's the most frightened I've ever been in my life."
