Kurt Cobain Said Nirvana Drummers Before Dave Grohl ‘Sucked’
A previously unheard Kurt Cobain interview from Belgium’s Studio Brussels, recorded in 1991, reveals the Nirvana frontman said the band’s drummers before Dave Grohl “pretty much sucked.”
Grohl joined Nirvana in 1990, taking over from Chad Channing. The band’s roster of drummers also included Dale Crover, Dave Foster, and session musicians Mark Pickerel and Dan Peters.
“Krist [Novoselic] and I have been playing together for about four and a half years now with a few different drummers,” Cobain said. “Dave has been in the band for about a year. This is the first time we’ve felt like a very definite unit.
“The band is finally complete because all the other drummers we had pretty much sucked."
