Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl spoke to The Sun in an interview and compared the musical success of Foo Fighters and Nirvana’s.
As most of you already know, Dave Grohl was the drummer of Nirvana. Before joining Nirvana, he was working with the punk rock band Scream. After Scream’s disbandment, he joined the grunge icons. Grohl became known as a respected drummer with his successful musical career with Nirvana and appeared on the band’s most successful album, ‘Nevermind.’
After the tragic death of Kurt Cobain in 1994, Dave Grohl founded the Foo Fighters, in which he is the singer, primary songwriter, and guitarist. In 1995, Foo Fighters released a debut solo album of the same name and are still active in the rock scene.
Speaking to The Sun, Dave Grohl commented on the development of Foo Fighters and recalled his career with Nirvana. He said they worked relentlessly for years to make Foo Fighters the band it is today. Moreover, he stated that, unlike Foo Fighters, Nirvana became a huge success unexpectedly in a relatively short time.
In the interview, while talking about Foo Fighters and Nirvana, Dave Grohl said:
“For years we have been in a fairly relentless cycle, slowly building. Nirvana became huge overnight — nobody expected that — but with this band, we’ve built up over time.
That has meant constant touring, recording, touring, recording, two weeks on and two weeks off for years without taking a break — so I guess that was overdue. The good thing to come from this whole thing has been family time.”
On a side note, Foo Fighters announced four UK stadium shows to take place in 2022. According to Dave Grohl, the Foos cannot wait to get back on stage outside the United States and look forward to these shows.
