Earlier this year, Dave Grohl reflected on Cobain‘s seismic musical impact, as well as discussing the emotional toll of Nirvana‘s untimely split.

“Of course, it was an incredibly challenging experience and ultimately one of the greatest heartbreaks of my life that Nirvana isn’t still here today making music,” Grohl said, speaking on Apple Music’s Medicine At Midnight Radio.

“Whether it would be called Nirvana or something else. It is one of my life’s greatest heartbreaks that Kurt isn’t still here to write more amazing songs because it’s pretty clear that he was blessed with a gift.

“I think it’s safe to say that he was the greatest songwriter of our generation. I’m very proud to say that I got to be his drummer and play those songs every night.”
