Biography

The ‘Best of You’ group were founded by Nirvana’s drummer Dave Grohl in the mid-90’s. Their debut album was released in 1995 and marked the first wave of success that the band would continue to ride for over two decades. The Foo Fighters have won a multitude of awards in their career, including Grammys, Brits, People’s Choice, Kerrang! and many more. The Foo Fighters formed following the tragic passing of Nirvana’s lead singer Kurt Cubain. Shortly after Cubain’s suicide, Grohl began recording some of his tracks he’d written during short breaks from touring with the ‘Nevermind’ group, and passed out demos to his contacts. Quick to follow, many record companies were interested in his material and he soon had a multi-platinum-selling album to his name. The lineup has changed over the years, but always featured Grohl. It currently consists of Taylor Hawkins (as of 1997), Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett (as of 1999), Nate Mendel (as of 1995), and Rami Jaffee (since 2017). The grunge sound of Nirvana can be traced in their music, which generally synthesises heavy guitar rock and anthemic melodies, with signature vocals by the ex-drummer, Grohl. Some of their most famous tracks to date include ‘Best of You’ (2005), ‘Everlong’ (1997), ‘Learn to Fly’ (1999), and ‘The Pretender’ (2002). Their seventh studio album ‘Wasting Light’ became the first number one album in the US, and their most recent ‘Concrete and Gold’ (2017) also topped charts, showing how the Foo Fighters are one of the only bands emerging from the grunge/alt-rock nineties that are still thriving.
