Dave Grohl Reveals The Sad Truth About Kurt Cobain's Drug Addiction

In a recent interview with Kerrang magazine, former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl revealed details about Kurt Cobain's drug addiction.

“In the 12 months between Reading ’91 and Reading ’92 when we headlined, the band had exploded… and imploded", says Grohl.

Grohl continued, “Kurt got strung out and wound up having to go to rehab. I remember showing up to Reading ’92 and there being so many rumors that we weren’t going to play, that we had cancelled. I walked backstage and some of my best friends in bands that were opening would see me and say, ‘What are you doing here?’

"And I’d go, ‘We’re f***ing headlining!’ And they’d be like, ‘You’re actually going to play?!’ I didn’t realize there was any question that we were going to play. I knew within myself I was questioning if we could play, but I knew we were going to try."
