Dave Matthews is the front man, guitarist and singer-songwriter of the popular grassroots group the Dave Matthews Band. Dave Chappelle is a comedian whose Comedy Central show, Chappelle's Show, became a smash hit in the early s.
Dave Thomas is best known for founding Wendy's hamburger restaurant chain. Grohl juga memberikan kontribusi riff gitar utama untuk lagu " The Apprentice Scentless ".
Sebelum sampai tur Eropa mereka, band ini dijadwalkan waktu sesi di Robert Lang Studio di Seattle untuk bekerja pada demo.
Duo ini selesai beberapa dengan beberapa lagu Grohl, "ini dalah cikal bakal Foo Fighters " lagu Exhausted , Big Me , February Stars , and Butterflies.
Pada hari ketiga sesi Cobain akhirnya tiba dan band ini merekam demo lagu yang kemudian dinamai You Know You're Right.
Itu adalah rekaman studio terakhir band ini. Ketika Cobain memutuskan bergabung dengan paduan suara di alam baka pada tahun , Grohl tidak punya band untuk bernaung.
Ia sempat berpikir untuk mundur sepenuhnya dari bisnis musik, namun akhirnya ia membongkar-bongkar tumpukan demo-demonya dan memutuskan merekam lagu-lagu terbaiknya di Studio profesional.
Setelah merekam sendiri sebagian besar lagu-lagu tersebut, ia memberikan kopinya kepada beberapa teman. Tanpa Grohl sadari, beredar kabar dari mulut ke mulut mengenai kaset lagu-lagu Hard rock -nya yang mengena, yang direkam dengan balutan kegemaran musik punk.
Beberapa perusahaan rekaman pun mengontak Grohl. Setelah teken kontrak dengan Capitol, ia merilis album dengan nama Foo Fighters. Mulai dari riff-riff yang menggiring serta suara-suara gitar yang mendengung dalam "I'll Stick Around serta Good Grief hingga bunyi kotor semi-metal dalam Weenie Beenie , jelas terlihat bahwa Grohl berhasil menghidupkan bentuk-bentuk musik klise yang sudah sekarat di pertengahan an.
Karena rekaman ini melesat dalam waktu singkat Grohl lantas merekrut mantan gitaris panggung Nirvana , Pat Smears , pemain bass, Sunny Day Real Estate , Nate Mendel , serta drummer William Goldsmith.
Sukses album pertama mendorong Grohl untuk memproduksi album kedua, kali ini melibatkan seluruh personil band. Saat itu Goldsmith telah mengundurkan diri, sehingga Grohl memainkan sendiri bagian drum selama rekaman, sebelum akhirnya merekrut drummer baru, Taylor Hawkins.
Hasilnya The Colour and the Shape di album ini upaya untuk menghasilkan sound ala Foo Fighters semakin kentara, dengan menghasilkan 4 single dalam prosesnya.
Pat Smear akhirnya juga keluar dari band setelah album ini dirilis. Kedudukannya langsung digantikan Franz Stahl , mantan rekan Grohl di Scream.
Susunan personil ini hanya bertahan sampai album rekaman There Is Nothing Left to Lose selesai. Saat itulah Stahl mundur.
