Dave Grohl Remembers Meeting NIRVANA for 1st Time: How I Got Introduced to Grunge

Dave Grohl remembered meeting the boys from Nirvana before they went on to change the world of music together, explaining in a new Dear Seattle video (via Alternative Nation):

“I remember getting off the plane, and Krist and Kurt meeting me at baggage claim. It was like having Children of the Corn pick you up from the airport. When I came up to Seattle, Nirvana was doing a show with another drummer.

“I get there to this Nirvana show, there’s 1,200 people, and maybe 15 of them looked like they were punk rockers. The rest were trailer park kids with greasy long hair wearing clothes they bought at Frey Myers and Salvation Army.

“They were flannels… I still dress like the kids I saw at the gig that night.

“It already felt like there was some sort of movement, but it was unintentional. These people just gathered, or were drawn to this thing, because it just sounded like they felt.

“The energy was different than anything I’d ever seen. That was my first day in Seattle.

“I went out and got drunk with all the guys in Nirvana, it was really fun. I thought if I don’t become the drummer, at least I have a story to tell. I think that’s the first time I grilled octopus too, that was weird.”

Grohl added during the chat:

“Anyone who spent more than one season in Seattle knows that there’s practically one season in Seattle. Those hard five or six months when you don’t see sun, you retreat to places like basements or bars. In that, you develop these little communities.

“I talked to friends at home, they’d say, ‘What did you do last night.’ I’d say, ‘I went and shot pool with a guy from Alice in Chains, a dude from Pearl Jam, a guy from Soundgarden, and someone from Mudhoney. It’s a big city with little-town vibe, small-town vibe.’

“Months went by where I didn’t see the sun. Kurt and I wouldn’t go to sleep until 9 o’clock in the morning as the sun was coming up.

“We’d wake up at 4 in the afternoon as it was going down, in this tiny little apartment where I slept on a couch that is half as long as me, with turtles and this aquarium that Kurt had built.”

It’s April 5th Again

I don’t think I have to remind you what happened on that day, right?

Kurt Cobain As a Driver

Kurt could not be accused of being an unsafe driver. On Nirvana’s first tour in Krist Novoselic’s van, everyone was put in a driving rotation except Kurt because everyone thought he drove too slow. Ex- girlfriend Tracy Marander recalls him driving “like a little old lady”.

Nirvana During Nevermind Cover Photoshoot

23rd May 1991, Photographer Michael Lavine took what would be the publicity shots for Nirvana’s Nevermind album at Jay Aaron Studios in Los Angeles. The idea for the front cover shot of the baby swimming was taken after Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl saw a TV documentary on water babies and was taken by Kirk Weddle. Several babies were used; five-month old Spencer Eldon’s photo came out best. More here: http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/pages/spencer_elden
