Dave Grohl confirmed in a new Apple Music interview that he considers Foo Fighters’ debut album dedicated to Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic.
“I mean it should be a lot of people. But I would dedicate it to Krist and Kurt because still to this day, the Nirvana experience was probably… I mean I don’t want to say… I have children. I can’t say it’s the most important event in my entire life.
But it’s safe to say that we wouldn’t be here right now talking about this if it weren’t for my time in Nirvana. And I had learned so many lessons from Kurt, I learned so many lessons from Krist. It was such an honor to be in that band and it was so devastating when it ended. But we have that catalogue of music that we made together and that experience changed not only us, but a lot of the world that we lived in.
So I think that that was probably my life’s most formative period. I went from being a messy teen to then being in this band that was huge. And then it all ending and trying to build life again with the lessons that I had learned through all of that. And I was really young, I was 24 or 25 or something. So I would dedicate it to Krist and Kurt because I owe so much to those guys for sure.”
Foo Fighters’ self-titled debut album is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, with a celebratory spring 2020 tour being postponed due to the pandemic.
