Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl revealed that he got a call about Kurt Cobain having died a full month before he really did, when Kurt overdosed on drugs in Rome. Grohl told the story on Whitney Cummings’ ‘Good For You’ podcast. He first discussed mourning the death of his best friend who he grew up with 10 years ago. Alternative Nation transcribed his comments. Dave Grohl making a disturbing drug remark to Dave Chappelle was revealed yesterday.
Grohl said about his friend who died of a drug overdose, “That one was really tricky because I still don’t feel like I’ve properly grieved. We were so close with each other, and we were such a huge part of each other’s lives, and then all of a sudden he’s gone. It’s weird, you wait for that release. You wait for everything just to come all crashing down, or for it to just come pouring out of you. I guess sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn’t.”
Grohl recently revealed a drug he still occasionally uses. He then said about Kurt Cobain, “One really weird thing is that before Kurt died, he overdosed once, when we were on tour, and I was actually back at home, and he was in Europe, and someone had called me and told me that he had died. I immediately freaked out, and was a total disaster, just crying, and losing my mind. Then five minutes later they called and said, ‘Actually he’s not dead.’
So then it was the greatest day of my life, because he was okay, but I was just so confused. Emotionally, I was like, what do I even feel right now? Five minutes ago I thought that he had died, and now he is alive, that is so weird. So when he finally did pass away, I just had such crazy emotional confusion that it was really, really strange, and still to this day, I don’t even know if I’ve figured it out.
I mean that was a long time ago, and I’ve talked about it, and thought about it, and grieved about it, a lot. But I don’t think that there’s any sort of road map for it. I think that each person does it in a different way. It’s just okay if you have those periods where you feel shame for not feeling more, and I don’t necessarily think you should. It just is what it is, and it will get you eventually.” Dave Grohl was lip syncing a bad Foo Fighters song in a recent video.
