The majority of people had never heard him speak, never alone hear him play guitar and sing. However, in the months after Cobain’s death, Dave Grohl made a demo tape under the name Foo Fighters, then recruited Germs guitarist Pat Smear and the Sunny Deal Real Estate rhythm section and began playing clubs. The project exploded in popularity, and the Foo Fighters now perform in far larger venues than Nirvana ever did.
