Cobain on Grohl

A newly-unearthed Kurt Cobain interview sees the Nirvana frontman saying that every one of the band’s drummers before Dave Grohl “pretty much sucked”. Grohl joined the grunge outfit in 1990, replacing ‘Bleach’ drummer Chad Channing. Dale Crover and Dave Foster had previously played drums in Nirvana, while the band had also worked with session musicians Mark Pickerel and Dan Peters. Studio Brussels, a radio station in Belgium, has now shared a recently unearthed interview, which took place in Ghent during November 1991. “Krist [Novoselic] and I have been playing together for about four and a half years now with a few different drummers,” Cobain says in the interview. “Dave has been in the band for about a year. This is the first time we’ve felt like a very definite unit.” Cobain then adds: “The band is finally complete because all the other drummers we had pretty much sucked.” (Luke Morgan Britton,
