Formed in 1994 by Dave Grohl as a one-man project following the dissolution of his previous band Nirvana, this talented American rock band has an impressive history. Grohl was later joined by two of his former bandmates Nate Mendel William Goldsmith, and Pat Smear. Goldsmith and Smear eventually left during the recording of the group's second album. They were replaced by Franz Stahl and Taylor Hawkins. Smear has since rejoined the band. Grohl has said that his songwriting has been influenced by his former Nirvana bandmate singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain. Grohl said, "Through Kurt, I saw the beauty of minimalism and the importance of music that's stripped down." Foo Fighters create a fusion of edgier sounds with harmonious notes. Describing the bands’ approach, Grohl said “We all love music…I think the lure of punk rock was the energy and immediacy; the need to thrash stuff around. But at the same time, we're all suckers for a beautiful melody”. Impressively the band has received Grammy nominations for all 6 of their albums. In total, they have won three Grammy Awards. The Foo Fighters are currently working on their seventh album, another Grammy Award perhaps? The band is renowned for their amazing live performances.
