On July 4th the Foo Fighters celebrated the 25th anniversary of their debut album and the bands’ mastermind Dave Grohl is looking back and says that if he had it to do over again, he would dedicate to the landmark album to his former Nirvana bandmates – Krist Novoselic and the late Kurt Cobain.
Grohl says, “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. It was such an honor to be in that band and it was so devastating when it ended. But we have that catalog 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."
Kurt Cobain died by suicide on April 5, 1994, immediately ending Nirvana and prompted Dave Grohl to form the Foo Fighters.
The band planned to launch their 25th anniversary tour this past spring but The Van Tour is now slated to kick off in Ontario on October 1st.
