Dave Grohl Reveals How He Partied With Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam & Soundgarden With Epic Photos


Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl discussed partying with Grunge era legends in a new Dear Seattle video. Alternative Nation transcribed his comments.

“Anyone who spent more than one season in Seattle knows that there’s practically one season in Seattle. Those hard five or six months when you don’t see sun, you retreat to places like basements or bars. In that, you develop these little communities.

I talked to friends at home, they’d say, ‘What did you do last night.’ I’d say, ‘I went and shot pool with a guy from Alice In Chains, a dude from Pearl Jam, a guy from Soundgarden, and someone from Mudhoney. It’s a big city with little town vibe, small town vibe.’

Months went by where I didn’t see the sun. Kurt and I wouldn’t go to sleep until 9 o’clock in the morning as the sun was coming up. We wake up at 4 in the afternoon as it was going down, in this tiny little apartment where I slept on a couch that is half as long as me, with turtles and this aquarium that Kurt had built. I’m happy that I got to experience those few years in Seattle where the city just exploded.”

    Vedder and Grohl had some fun in that van during the Mike Watt tour when they were backing him. He mentioned it in the 10 year anniversary issue Spin did in more detail.
