25 years after the release of Foo Fighters' self-titled debut album, Dave Grohl recalled that it was the band L7 that inspired him to continue making music. While reeling from Kurt Cobain's death, the band — who had also lost a band member — sent him a postcard gently prodding him to not leave his music behind.
Grohl told Apple Music, “Yeah, that was soon after Kurt’s memorial that I got that. It basically said 'I know that you probably don’t want to play music now but you will because that’s how you get through these things.'”
He went on to say, “And it was a huge wake up call for me because they were right. I couldn’t consider playing music at the time and then I did realize that maybe that’s the thing that’s gonna get me through this.”
