Background and first demos (1990–1994) See More https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foo_Fighters
In 1990, Dave Grohl joined the grunge group Nirvana as drummer. During tours, he took a guitar with him and wrote songs, but was too intimidated to share them with the band; he was “in awe” of the songs written by frontman Kurt Cobain. Grohl occasionally booked studio time to record demos and covers, issuing an album of demos, Pocketwatch, under the pseudonym Late! in 1992.
Nirvana disbanded after the death of Cobain in 1994. Grohl received offers to work with various artists; press rumors indicated he might join Pearl Jam, and he almost accepted a position as drummer in Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Grohl later said: “I was supposed to just join another band and be a drummer the rest of my life.
I thought that I would rather do what no one expected me to do.” Grohl instead entered Robert Lang Studios in October 1994 to record 15 of his own songs. With the exception of a guitar part on X-Static, played by Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs, Grohl played every instrument and sang every vocal. He completed an album’s worth of material in five days and handed out cassette copies of the sessions to his friends for feedback.
Grohl hoped to stay anonymous and release the recordings in a limited run under the name Foo Fighters, taken from foo fighter, a World War II term for unidentified flying objects.He hoped the name would lead listeners to assume the music was made by several people. He said later: “Had I actually considered this to be a career, I probably would have called it something else, because it’s the stupidest fucking band name in the world.The demo tape circulated in the industry, creating interest among record labels.
