About Foo Fighters in brief
Foo Fighters are an American rock band, formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1994. It was founded by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as a one-man project following the dissolution of Nirvana after the suicide of Kurt Cobain. The group took its name from \”Foo fighter\”, a nickname coined by Allied aircraft pilots for UFOs and other aerial phenomena. Over the course of their career, Foo Fighters have won 12 Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Album four times. In February 2021, the band will release its tenth album, Medicine at Midnight. The band’s ninth studio album, Concrete and Gold, became their second to reach number one in the United States and was the band’s first studio album to feature longtime session and touring keyboardist Rami Jaffee as a full member. They have also won an American Music Award, four Brit Awards, and two MTV Video Music Awards. They are currently on tour in the U.S. and will play the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday, September 22. They will also perform at the NFL’s Super Bowl XLVII halftime show in New York City on September 28, 2015. They were previously on tour with Nirvana in 1994 and 1995. They released their first album, In Your Honor, in 1995. Foo Fighters released their sixth album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, in 2007. In 2011, they released their seventh album, Wasting Light, produced by Butch Vig, in which Pat Smear returned as aFull member. In November 2014, the group’s eighth album, Sonic Highways, was released as an accompanying soundtrack to the Grohl-directed 2014 miniseries of the same name.
They also released their ninth album, Concrete and Gold, on September 15, 2017, which became theirsecond to reach No. 1 in the US. The album was the first to feature guitarist Chris Shiflett on guitar. Grohl has been in the band since 1994, when he joined Nirvana as a drummer. He left the band after the death of Cobain in 1994, and has since played in several other bands. He has also played with Pearl Jam and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. He is the only member of Foo Fighters who has not been a member of the band for more than a decade. He also has a son, Jake, who was born in 1996. He currently lives in Seattle with his wife and their two children. They live with their mother in Portland, Oregon, and have a daughter, Ava, who lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their three children. In 2010, Grohl moved back to Seattle to be closer to his family. He and Nate Mendel recruited bassist and drummer William Goldsmith, both formerly of Sunny Day Real Estate, as well as Nirvana touring guitarist PatSmear, to join the band. They recorded Foo Fighters’ debut album Foo Fighters, which featuredGrohl as the only official member. Goldsmith quit during the recording of their second album, The Colour and the Shape, when most of the drum parts were re-recorded by Grohl.
