DAVE GROHL Admits He Still Can't Listen To NIRVANA

According to The Pulse Of Radio, FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl admitted in a new interview with GQ that he still finds it difficult to listen to the music of NIRVANA, the band that gave him his first commercial success but ended with the suicide of singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain in April 1994. Grohl explained: "When Kurt died, every time the radio came on, it broke my heart. I don't put NIRVANA records on, no. Although they are always on somewhere. I get in the car, they're on. I go into a shop, they're on."

Grohl added that his memories of making the NIRVANA albums he played on are as vivid as ever, saying: "I remember everything about those records; I remember the shorts I was wearing when we recorded them or that it snowed that day."

Although he has achieved vast success on his own terms with FOO FIGHTERS, Grohl remarked that he could not have done it without the experiences he went through in NIRVANA. He said: "I was 21... I thought I knew everything. And being in NIRVANA showed me how little I really knew. They were some of the greatest highs of my life, but also, of course, one of the biggest lows. Those experiences became a footing or a foundation on how to survive."
Grohl launched FOO FIGHTERS in late 1995, a year and a half after Cobain's death, and has recorded nine albums with the group.

FOO FIGHTERS will resume their current North American tour in support of the band's 2017 LP, "Concrete And Gold", on July 6 in Columbia, Maryland.
