An extremely talented musician, Dave’s career started with the grunge band Nirvana. He had drummed the whole album, Nevermind, and helped to write Smells Like Teen Spirit. After Kurt Cobain’s death in early 1994, Dave went underground and made his own album. He was recruited by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, as well as Pearl Jam. He decided not to join. His album, which included him playing every instrument and singing, was found by a record label in 1995. He had gotten a band together, his album a professional mix, and it was released as the Foo Fighter’s debut album. Since then Dave had drummed an entire album for Queens of The Stone Age (You Are Free) and for Tenacious D.
"If I had a choice to bring John Bonham back to life and have him be my drummer I would say no 'cause Dave Grohl is an awesome drummer. (Dave) is really that good." - Kurt Cobain
