Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl revealed that late Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain kissed him in a hotel bathroom while taking a bath. It’s a cute, but gross story, could have done it when you got out and weren’t wet Kurt! Dave Grohl’s disgusting eating photos at a BBQ were revealed over the weekend.
This song was written in Grohl’s basement in 1992 after the Nevermind tour ended. On a trip to New York to play Saturday Night Live, Grohl went to Cobain’s hotel room to share it with him. “He was having a bubble bath,” recalls Grohl. He pressed play and left Cobain to soak in it. “I went back in and he kissed me! That might have been the only time I ever felt validated by the band.” Some resented Grohl’s decision to keep playing. “I didn’t imagine I was gonna pick up where Nirvana left off. I didn’t imagine myself to be Freddie Mercury,” he says. “I made 100 cassettes and handed them to friends. I called it Foo Fighters because I didn’t want people to think I was trying to be Tom Petty.” Grohl made the remarks during a recent Guardian interview.
Foo Fighters recently wrapped up a massively successful European tour, including a performance at Reading and a bad Red Hot Chili Peppers cover, which the band have played several times in the past dating back to 1995. Dave Grohl performed at Reading with Nirvana in 1991 and 1992, with the 1992 gig becoming arguably the most iconic performance in the band’s history besides MTV Unplugged, with Kurt Cobain taking the stage in a hospital gown after rumors of his health issues. Dave Grohl made a bold Kurt Cobain demand at a concert recently.
