Machine Gun Kelly Shares The Story Dave Grohl Told Him About Kurt Cobain’s Passing
The successful and controversial rapper Machine Gun Kelly shared a post on his official Twitter account revealing the time when former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl told him a story about how he felt following the passing of his bandmate Kurt Cobain. Apparently, the Foo Fighters frontman’s consolation after losing his friend was music, something that sticks with an artist forever.
As many of you know, Dave Grohl and Kurt Cobain were bandmates for a relatively short time. Throughout their seven-year-long music career, the duo managed to create one of the greatest legacies in the history of rock music and became one of the best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 75 million records worldwide.
Although things were going perfectly for the band’s career, everything took a dark turn when the Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle, Washington, on April 8, 1994. It was later revealed that Kurt had killed himself three days earlier, on April 5, at the infamous age of 27.
His passing is still considered one of the most famous cases of the 27 club since he left a suicide note addressed to his childhood imaginary friend Boddah and many fans still believe conspiracy theories regarding his death. Dave Grohl suffered the pain of losing a friend after the frontman’s passing but decided to continue making music and founded Foo Fighters as a solo project.
Recently, Machine Gun Kelly opened up about when Dave Grohl shared a story about how he felt the day after Kurt Cobain passed away via a post on his official Twitter page. It seems like it has been stuck in the rapper’s mind not because of the entire narrative but because of Dave’s last words finishing the story.
Grohl advised Machine Gun Kelly to fall in love with the music since it will be there for him no matter what happens, until the end. Moved by this sentence, MGKy felt the need to share this special memory with his fans.
In his tweet, MGK penned:
“Dave Grohl told me a story about the day after Kurt died that hasn’t left my mind. Not just because of the anecdotes, but his last sentence resonated with me heavily, it was simply: ‘Fall in love with the music because it will always be there.'”
