Dave Grohl: “When Kurt Died, Every Time The Radio Came On, It Broke My Heart”
“For years I couldn’t even listen to any music, let alone a Nirvana song,” he said. “When Kurt died, every time the radio came on, it broke my heart.”
“I don’t put Nirvana records on, no. Although they are always on somewhere. I get in the car, they’re on. I go into a shop, they’re on. For me, it’s so personal. I remember everything about those records; I remember the shorts I was wearing when we recorded them or that it snowed that day.”
“Still, I go back and find new meanings to Kurt’s lyrics,” not to seem revisionist, but there are times when it hits me. You go, ‘Wow, I didn’t realize he was feeling that way at the time.’”
