Grohl Owes Everything To Kurt Cobain And Krist Novoselic

(Gibson) With the recent release of the Foo Fighters' new album, Wasting Light, and a new career-spanning documentary of the band, Back and Forth, Dave Grohl has been spending a fair amount of time discussing his past. His conclusion?

"I owe everything to Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic," he told NME about his old bandmates, "but needed to find my own territory [with the Foos]."

Grohl talked about how his Nirvana legacy came full circle on Wasting Light, which was produced by Nevermind helmer Butch Vig and features Novoselic on a couple tracks. "It was necessary to have all those things come to the surface to break through with this record," he said. "I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing now if it wasn't for Nirvana."
