Dave Grohl Reveals Fear Of Foo Fighters Having Nirvana Tragedy


Dave Grohl discussed his fear of Foo Fighters ending like Nirvana in a recent Billboard Chart Beat podcast interview.

“After that first [Foo Fighters] record, we thought ‘okay, well let’s make one more.’ and some of us were like, backpacking through Europe and we spent our life doing it but you gotta do it at least once, so we thought, okay let’s do it again. This time, we’ll get an established producer and we’ll really work on it because the first one was just me, five days in the studio.

So the ball kinda just kept rolling and it was a nice way to feel like life had direction and that there were things to look forward to, because I didn’t want to get stuck in that place where I was when Nirvana ended. So, no I never, ever thought we would be in the place that we are in now. I mean, anyone that would imagined that happening is just fucking insane. If someone were to tell me we would be where we are now I would tell them they are wrong, that there’s no way that’s possible.

I’m proud of what the band has achieved, the biggest challenge is survival, and I don’t mean in terms of a music career, I mean just in life, just to be able to survive as long as we have, we feel very fortunate, very blessed that we’re still here, for sure.”
