Foo Fighters singer moved by Nirvana home video

Dave Grohl sees Kurt on YouTube

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl said that he was moved when he found home videos of Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain online.

Grohl said that he knew immediately when the footage was taken, and realised it was at a point in Cobain‘s life when the singer/songwriter, who committed suicide in 1994, was extremely unhappy.

Grohl: “I watched this thing on YouTube of Kurt‘s home movies.

“He’s hanging around with his family in a park, sitting by this stream as these little girls run around.

“And it broke my heart, because I knew when that was, and I knew that he wasn’t necessarily happy at the time.”

He told Spin: “He couldn’t fully experience the joy of life.”
