Foo Fighters leader and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl says he still has vivid dreams about Kurt Cobain. The Nirvana singer, songwriter, and guitarist shot himself to death on April 5th, 1994 in a room above the garage of his Seattle home.
Grohl, who'll release his latest album with the Foos, Medicine At Midnight, on Friday (February 5th), told The Independent that Cobain's death nearly curtailed his won musical career, revealing, “I wasn’t sure I’d ever play music again. I turned the amplifiers off. I was lost.”
He went on to talk about the times that Cobain visits him in his dreams: “They always give me this initial burst of happiness and joy, because Kurt is always in them. It’s like: 'Oh! He’s still alive!' There’s never any explanation for that. Just that lovely feeling. Then it all goes wrong when we go on stage. There’s no one in the audience and my drum sticks stretch to the size of telephone poles. I honestly believe there is some energy or interconnectivity that makes those encounters more than just dreams. I’m not a psychic or anything like that. But I do believe there’s an energy to those dreams that makes them more than hallucinations.”
