Dave Grohl not guilty for success
Dave Grohl has never felt guilty about his success.
The Foo Fighters frontman started off as a punk rock drummer before rising to superstardom in grunge band Nirvana, and said he dislikes the purist attitude some bands have toward successful groups.
He told Q Magazine: "Don't get me started on guilt. Honestly, guilt and music should have nothing to do with each other. Growing up in the punk rock scene, unfortunately there were rules.
"You'd imagine that'd be the one place you'd be free of any boundaries. But you weren't supposed to do certain things.
"To me, I was a musician. I loved the Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains and all this punk rock, but I also loved Motorhead, Venom and ABBA. I didn't have that guilt. I can be friendly with the Jonas Brothers and Bob Mould."
Dave, 42, added that while he wasn't guilty for his success, it deeply affected Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994.
He said: "The whole thing with guilt is... Of course it burnt a hole in Kurt's stomach. It had a lot to do with how uneasy he felt about Nirvana's success. But I didn't."
