Grohl's rocket-powered journey from obscurity in little known punk bands to worldwide fame with Nirvana is barely believable. He joined the band shortly before they hit the studio to make Nevermind, one of the 20th century's most influential musical statements.
At the peak of the band's fame, it all came to a tragic end with the death of Kurt Cobain. Instead of fading away, however, Grohl launched a new project called Foo Fighters and fronted it, instead of playing drums.
This band has been remarkably successful and to this day is a world-touring juggernaut. Grohl is also famous for his many comedic guises in Foo Fighters film clips, and still finds time to play drums, including touring with Queens of the Stone Age.
