Dave Grohl Reflects on Nirvana Days & Foo Fighters' Debut Album on Its 25th Anniversary - Billboard
Jul 04, 2020 1 min, 43 secs

Dave Grohl joined Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music for a conversation about the time period from his early days in Nirvana through the release of the first Foo Fighters album.

Grohl admitted that when he joined Nirvana and they became "really huge really quickly," he was still insecure that he wasn't quite good enough for the band.

"Well I mean I joined Nirvana, I was their fifth drummer, right?" he said.

So when I joined the band, I didn't know Krist and Kurt at all.

And when we first met and started playing, it was clear that when we got together to play that it worked really well, and we sounded what most people know now to sound like Nirvana.

But every band I'd been in before then was with friends that I'd known for a really long time.

So when you join a band where you don't know anyone and you're just starting to get to know each other, and it sounds great when you play music, you're just starting to get to know each other, but there's not a deep personal connection.

And then the band becomes really huge really quickly.

"I started getting calls from people to ask if I wanted to play drums with them or join another band, and I just didn't see that happening at the time," he said.

I didn't really want to write or even listen to music, much less join a band and play in one.

I went from being a messy teen to then being in this band that was huge.

Grohl continued: "There's some journalists that are just like, 'How dare you played music after Nirvana.' I'm like, 'What am I supposed to do?'  We tried really hard to do it right.

Instead of jumping on a tour opening up for some massive arena band at the time, we thought, 'Okay, well let's get in the van and let's do it like we've always done it.

I mean it was like if someone gave you shit, you just say, "F--- you, motherf---er."
