Foo Fighters Biography
While he was drumming with Nirvana, Dave Grohl was recording
original songs at home that never received public release. Those tapes
would become the foundation of Foo Fighters, the band he formed in
1995, after the death of Kurt Cobain. Like Nirvana, Foo Fighters melded
loud, heavy guitars with pretty melodies and mixed punk sensibilities
with a sharp sense of pop songwriting.
Dave Grohl began playing guitar and writing songs in his early teens,
as well as performing with a variety of hardcore punk bands. In the
late '80s, when he was still in his teens, he joined the Washington,
D.C.-area hardcore band Scream as their drummer. During the final days
of Scream, Grohl began recording his own material in the basement
studio of his friend Barrett Jones. Some of Grohl's songs appeared on
Scream's final album, Fumble. After Scream's 1990 summer tour, Grohl
joined Nirvana and moved to Seattle.
After Nirvana recorded Nevermind, Grohl went back to the D.C. area and
recorded a handful of tracks that would appear on Pocketwatch, a
cassette released by Simple Machines. For most of 1992 he was busy with
Nirvana, but when the band stayed off of the road, he recorded solo
material with Jones, who had moved to Seattle. The pair kept recording
throughout early 1993, when Grohl returned to Nirvana to record In
Utero. Grohl had toyed with the idea of releasing another independent
cassette in the summer of 1993, but the plans never reached fruition.
Following Kurt Cobain's suicide in 1994, the drummer kept quiet for
several months. In the fall of 1994, booking time in a professional
studio, Grohl and Jones recorded the album that became Foo Fighters'
debut album in a week. Boiling down his backlog of songs to about 15
tracks, Grohl played all of the instruments on the album. He made 100
copies of the tape, passing it out to friends and associates. In no
time, Grohl's solo project became the object of a fierce record company
Instead of embarking on a full-fledged solo career, Grohl decided to
form a band. Through his wife he met Nate Mendel, the bassist for Sunny
Day Real Estate. Shortly before the pair met, Jeremy Enigk, the leader
of Sunny Day Real Estate, had converted to Christianity and quit the
band, effectively ending the group's career. Not only did Mendel join
Grohl's band, but so did Sunny Day's drummer, William Goldsmith; former
Germs and Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear rounded out the lineup. The band,
named Foo Fighters after a World War II secret force that allegedly
researched UFOs, signed a contract with Capitol Records. The band's
self-titled debut, consisting solely of Dave Grohl's solo recordings,
was released on July 4, 1995. It was an instant success in America, as
This Is a Call garnered heavy alternative and album rock airplay. By
early 1996, the album was certified platinum in the U.S.
Throughout 1996, Foo Fighters supported the album with an extensive
tour, enjoying a crossover hit with Big Me that spring. Late in the
year, the group began recording their second album with producer Gil
Norton. During the sessions, William Goldsmith left the band due to
creative tensions, leaving Grohl to drum on the majority of the album.
Before the record's release in the spring of 1997, Goldsmith was
replaced by Taylor Hawkins, who had previously drummed with Alanis
Morissette. The Colour and the Shape, Foo Fighters' second album and
the first they recorded as a band, was issued in May of 1997. Smear
left the group in the wake of the album's completion, and was replaced
by guitarist Franz Stahl, whose stay proved short-lived; 1999's There
Is Nothing Left to Lose was recorded as a three-piece, with ex-No Use
for a Name guitarist Chris Shiflett signing on soon after. One by One,
the group's most polished production, appeared in late 2002, followed
by 2005's In Your Honor, which narrowly missed the top of Billboard's
album chart. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide
