Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl: "Nirvana became too big too quick"


Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl was guest on director Sam Jones's interview series "Off Camera", where he discussed Nirvana. You can read some excerpts below.

Dave Grohl said: "Unfortunately, Nirvana became too big too quick. Bands are like families that go through uncomfortable growing pains, and if it happens all at once, it's just too much to handle."

Dave Grohl also remembered how he felt immediately after Nirvana's Kurt Cobain died and how that led him to create Foo Fighters. He said: "When Kurt died, I woke up the next day and thought, 'I'm lucky to be alive'… It was a profound revelation I had the day after he died and it changed everything. It honestly changed so much of my life that I felt the most important thing was just appreciating being alive, good day or bad day. But after Kurt died, I really felt that way, like, 'Okay, I'm gonna try this. What do I have to lose? I'm gonna start this band and then I'm gonna be the singer.'"
