Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl came from the grunge rock band, Nirvana as drummer in 1990. While with the band, he brought his guitar and wrote songs in between tours. Four years later, when Nirvana's lead vocalist Kurt Cobain found dead in his Seattle home, the band subsequently disbanded. Grohl received numerous offers to join other bands. Instead, he entered the studio and recorded 15 of the forty songs he has written.
