Dave Grohl Says He Knew Kurt Cobain Would Burn Out, Not Fade Away

    Why, yes, Dave Grohl is a badass drummer, but did you know he’s also a psychic? In an interview with Jo Whiley for BBC Radio 1, Grohl claims he expected his Nirvana band mate, Kurt Cobain, to die young. He elaborates:

    There are some people that you meet in life that you just know that they are not going to live to be a hundred years old…in some ways, you kind of prepare yourself emotionally for that to be a reality.

    Yep, pure supernatural intuition. Or maybe Cobain’s songs “I Hate Myself And Want To Die” and “Rape Me” had something to do with Grohl’s prediction.


    The Foo Fighters frontman also talked about his delicate songwriting process, called Nevermind recording engineer Butch Vig “the sweetest man in the world” and likened their collaboration to “a chocolate coated chocolate,” and talked about his mother’s background in a cappella singing.  A well-rounded interview for a well-rounded drummer cum psychic.
