I miss it all a lot. 3 in both the UK and Australian ARIA charts. It was a blast. Dave’s most indelible memory of the gig was feeling “a huge relief that we just made it to the end”. No one needs reminding, but Dave Grohl spent the first half of the 1990s playing drums in the biggest rock band in a generation. Then, in conjunction with the album’s release, Foos joined Shudder to Think and Wool on their US tour.

But if you’re dealt a fucking hand you deal with it. But given that Nirvana’s former drummer had never previously fronted a band, and that this particular unit had been in existence for less than two months, it’s easy to understand why he elected to wait until everyone was “wicked fucking drunk” before premiering a set of songs that only a handful of those in attendance had heard.

That album the vocals are quadrupled. Foo Fighters reached no. On January 8, 1995, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder gave the ‘group’ their first airplay by playing two songs from the tape – Exhausted and a cover of the Angry Samoans’ Gas Chamber – on his Seattle-based Self Pollution Radio show.
