The Foos are from Seattle, Washington and they have been around for a very long time now. The band started off as a four piece with Taylor Hawkins on lead guitar, Pat Smear on bass, and Greg Dulli on drums. Their early beginnings included not having any rehearsal space, or even a practice room! However, they put up their first record and signed to Capitol Records, who had the modest goal of getting them on the road. They put out two singles and played shows in some small places before they got their big break.
The Foo Fighters was the B-Side to the U2 album "Where The Streets Have No Name". They were offered jobs as a sound engineer by U2 and a radio DJ for KXW. They were even offered to be in an 80's TV show by Matt Groening! But they turned those down because the sound on the radio, especially with the vocals, was much better on the Foo Fighters. After their single peaked at number nine on the Billboard chart, they were signed to Capitol Records and quickly earned their reputation as a great rock band. They released two more albums in less than a year, "MTV Unplugged"The Colour And The Shape". The band peaked at number three on the Billboard charts with their third album, "My Hero", which featured the hit song "Everlong".
After releasing a series of albums, including the last one "Aerosmith", which they called "The Material World". This album was not too successful, however the Foo Fighters was still around and are still one of the most popular bands in the music industry today. The Foo Fighters are members of the Mix-n-Match network and is known for playing a variety of concerts.
Dave Grohl, singer and guitarist of the best Rock Video from Nirvana, just won a Grammy for Best Rock Video and Greatest Rock and Roll Performance. Nirvana has won a Grammy a few times before but this is their first win for "Nevermind". It's great to see Grohl back in the spotlight with his new record, Saint Cecilia. The album is a bit different than what we are used to seeing from Nirvana and is quite catchy as well. Dave Grohl has been a consistent artist in the rock and roll world for a long time and has proven himself as one of the best.
"Nevermind" was nominated for Best Rock Video and Best Rock Performance. It is very well deserved and it was one of the best rock videos of all time. It won three Grammy awards and was nominated for eight more. I'd say it's the highest that they have ever won for any one song. This is a major accomplishment and a testament to the hard work and talent that people put into their craft.
On February 6th, the album will be released by Capitol Records in Nashville, Indio, CA. I'm pretty sure this will be one of the highest selling albums of the year if not the year. I'm also sure that it will be a record breaker. I would be very surprised if it doesn't get at least three times the sales that "Nevermind" did in the US alone. Nirvana has been my favorite band for over a decade now and I never expected to see them go on to win a Grammy. It's the highest honor that could be given and it says a lot about the hard work that the band put into their music.
