Dave Grohl Looks Back on Nirvana

(Rock AAA) Dave Grohl has revealed he took a trip down memory lane and even blasted out his first rendition of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' in almost 20-years when his former Nirvana band mates Krist Novelsic and Pat Smear and producer Butch Vig all came on board to lend a hand with Foo Fighter's brand new album.

The Foo's main man, and former Nirvana drummer, claims he hadn't even played the note of his former band's iconic hit since the band parted ways following the death of singer Kurt Cobain as he found it too hard to even talk about the band while he was also keen to avoid the band overshadowing his new project.

But now with Teen Spirit 20-years-old, and with so many pieces of the Nirvana jigsaw in the same place at the same time, Grohl reveals it felt natural to play some of their old classics. He told Entertainment Weekly: "Deciding to work with Butch on this record was a big step for me, personally, because I've had to walk this really fine line between the Foo Fighters and Nirvana for 17 years."
