It’s August 14, 1995. Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is most certainly as nervous as he’s ever been backstage at the Late Show with David Letterman. It’s no secret that in his early Fooey days he was petrified to step out in front of an audience. The Nirvana times where he nestled behind his drum-kit while Cobain took the limelight were over, and he was now the focal point.
‘This Is A Call’ was receiving some industry recognition, but the world was still yet to make their mind up on Grohl’s new project. He’d rejected the opportunity to drum for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers to focus on his solo career, and whilst this performance was not necessarily make-or-break, Nirvana fans everywhere would be watching with a questioning eye.
How do you think he went?
