Dave Grohl reflects on the death of Kurt Cobain
Grohl wrote the unanswered questions in the memoir and said it was a tough one to write. When asked why he chose to write that chapter last, Grohl said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET):
“‘Cause I was scared to write it. It’s one thing to write about getting stitches when you’re 12 years old or it’s one thing to write about taking your kids to the daddy-daughter dance, it’s another thing to write about something that you’ve barely spoken about with people close to you. I mean, I revealed some things in that story that I’ve never told my closest friends. I was scared to write it.
“First of all, I knew what people wanted me to write,” he continued. “I think that people have a lot of unanswered questions — as do I. So I decided to write in a much broader emotional sense — the process of loss or grief and mourning, and how that’s determined and how it differs from person to person. Yeah, it was a tough one to write.”
