Dave Grohl Admits He Still Can’t Listen to Nirvana, Too Upsetting
Dave Grohl admits that he still can't listen to Nirvana, because it's "too personal," and it makes him too upset. Talking to British GQ Magazine, quote, "When Kurt [Cobain] died, every time the radio came on, it broke my heart. I don't put Nirvana records on . . . although they are always on somewhere. I get in the car, they're on. I go into a shop, they're on."
That said, he hasn't blocked the memories out. He says, quote, "I remember everything about those records . . . I remember the shorts I was wearing when we recorded them, or that it snowed that day."
In other Dave Grohl news, he fell while on stage a few gigs back.
He did NOT break his leg. Last time I checked, he lent his 2015 Tour Throne to Axl Rose when he was banged up...
Dave invited a fan, as he's prone to do at shows for no reason, a very young drummer, 8-year old "Little Fonzie" to come up on stage and pound out a song with the band, but then the kid didn't want to give us his moment in the spotlight, much to the delight of Foo drummer Taylor Hawkins.
Foo Fighters did a nifty little mashup while rehearsing for their current tour. They took the music from John Lennon's "Imagine" and had Dave sing Van Halen's "Jump" on top of it.
