Grohl defends his Nirvana contribution

Dave Grohl has spoken out about his contribution to Nirvana.

The Foo Fighters frontman insisted that all three members had an impact of Nirvana’s sound, not just Kurt Cobain. Speaking on the issue, he said:

“I was actually Nirvana’s fifth drummer and if you listen to the recordings with the previous guys you will notice it sounds different…Krist Novoselic and I have been called sidemen to Kurt for fucking years – that lawsuit is done with, y’know?

I started playing in bands as a teenager, not a career option, but as a way to find weed and not have to work. When Nirvana became popular it was unexpected – no one thought that would happen to our band.”
