More History of Foo Fighters
Grohl joined the grunge group Nirvana as its drummer in 1990. During tours, he took a guitar with him and wrote songs. Grohl held back these songs from the rest of the band; he said in 1997, "I was in awe of and I was intimidated. I thought it was best that I kept my songs to myself."
