Dave Grohl is getting in touch with his storied past with the release of his new memoir The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music which came out this week.
To mark the release, Grohl is on a small tour of intimate venues to talk about the book and its contents, and as part of it, plays some of the biggest songs that he has been a part of. At the stop in New York City, Grohl spoke about the "primitive" way her recorded some of the Foo Fighters biggest hits, "My Hero" and "Everlong," and performed them solo on an acoustic guitar for the audience.
But perhaps the most memorable moment of the night happened when a Grohl sat behind a drum kit and played along with a recording of his former band Nirvana, and their biggest hit "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Although Grohl has come a long way in the 30 years since the song literally changed the face of music, his playing is still as impactful as ever. It's a rare moment to see Grohl fully embrace Nirvana as he has spoken previously about how hard and how long it has taken for him to deal with the sudden death of Kurt Cobain.
