Soon after he auditioned for scream

Nirvana Grohl would work with Nirvana on a follow up album after Bleach, which would be called Never Mind. September 24th 1991 the album would be released rating at the top of the charts. Never mind set the standard for alternative music it was a hard-hitting album but was mellow at the same time. Grohl’s mind-blowing drum skills helped elevate nirvana to a new level. He also helped Nirvana become one of the most important bands of the 90s. In September 21 1992 Nirvanas masterpiece in Utero came out believed to their greatest album by many. Unfortunately 7 months after Nirvana had hit the top of the charts Curt Cobain killed himself ending Nirvana. Birth of the Foo Fighters.
Before the death of Curt Cobain and Nirvana, Grohl had been working on music of his own creation. But he was so upset about Cobains death that he almost completely gave up on music. With the help of his friends he was able to make what would become the first album by the foo fighters. Soon he would create his first album called Foo Fighters, in which he played every instrument. Luckily he had a head start since he had already been playing drums and guitar since he was 10 years old along with other various instruments.
Grohl wanted to go on tour to support the album however he was missing a band but soon he would find the pieces to the puzzle. After retuning home from the tour he began work on the soundtrack for the 1997 movie touch. Grohl performed all the vocals and played all instruments yet again except on a few songs, despite having found a band.
Tension grew between Grohl and the people working with him as they begin to feel like the amount of work they did on the songs he wanted help with were not good enough. William Goldsmith even proclaimed that Grohl had him do 96 takes on a single song and put 13 hours of work into another.
