Hear guitarist, songwriter, and actor Dave Grohl of the band Foo Fighters on this edition of Fresh Air.


Previously, Dave Grohl was the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana. He formed Foo Fighters after the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994. The band has a sixth album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. It includes a song he wrote in tribute to two miners trapped in a mine collapse in Australia. When the men were trapped, they requested an iPod with Foo Fighters songs sent down to them. Grohl heard about the request, sent them a note, and then later met with one of the miners. Grohl also performed as a drummer on Tenacious D's debut album, and he later appeared in the 2006 movie Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny. [Broadcast Date: October 22, 2007]
