Dave Grohl Now Happy to Talk About Nirvana

For a long time, it was considered bad form to ask Dave Grohl about Nirvana. Now he hopes he’ll always be asked for Nirvana stories.

Grohl says Kurt Cobain’s death was a traumatic experience and the last thing he wanted to do was grieve on television. It got easier as time passed, and creating the Foo Fighters helped with that.

Grohl says part of him wants to get out of the shadow of Nirvana because he doesn’t want it to eclipse the Foo Fighters, but he acknowledges that Foo Fighters would never have existed if it weren’t for Nirvana. He says, “I hope that I have to talk about Nirvana for the rest of my life.”
