Dave Grohl has always been honest about how much the death of his friend and bandmate in Nirvana affected him, Kurt Cobain. But nevertheless, What many don’t know is that the drummer actually knew about it a month before this actually happened.
How? The truth is that the artist received a call stating that Cobain had died, although it was not true. Regrettably, shortly after this, the call would come true and the musician lost his great friend.
Dave Grohl and the strange call about Kurt Cobain
On April 5, 1994, the entire world mourned the death of Nirvana’s iconic frontman. This included his bandmates, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, who were always close to Kurt Cobain.

“My knees gave way and I dropped the phone as I fell to the ground, covering my face with my hands as I began to cry.”Dave Grohl noted about the moment he was told Cobain died of an overdose.
“Was gone. The shy guy who offered me an apple at our first meeting at the Seattle airport was gone.. My silent and introverted roommate with whom I shared an apartment. The father who played with his daughter before each concert. I had more sadness than I thought was possible.” continued the artist in his book The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music.

This pain was replaced by a sense of relief when, five minutes later, he received a call to tell him that Kurt Cobain was alive.. “In just five minutes I went from one of the darkest moments of my life to feeling alive again. From that day on, I raised my walls », assured the leader of Foo Fighters.
Unfortunately, only a month later, Dave Grohl had to face the death of Kurt Cobain. This time, It was not a mistake and the artist had to say goodbye to his great friend and companion of years.
