Solo

Dave Grohl - The One Man Band

As Dave Grohl bounced around bands in the early 1980s his desires to write his own music grew ever stronger. With the incredible ability to competetently play all parts of a song himself, Dave recorded his songs for over a decade, including during his time in NIRVANA.

All of these sessions are documented as well as his later solo efforts away from the band, such as 2018’s PLAY project.

Foo Fighters

Fighting Foo for 25 years

Born out of the tragedy of Kurt Cobain’s death Foo Fighters have risen from the ranks of tiny clubs playing to a few hundred people to selling out huge stadiums across the world. In that time they have recorded nine full length albums and also put to tape many other songs, including contributions to movie soundtracks.

Those, as well as demo recording sessions which produced songs never released to this day, are all featured.

Other Sessions

About The Author

Simon Kilmore

I’ve been a fan of Foo Fighters since the late 90s and my ever growing love of the band led me to create FooFightersLive.com in 2006, a website packed with information on the band including their live performances, their songs, and more.


Whilst I’m not a musically gifted person myself I have always had a keen interest in the behind the scenes of any artist, how they made their music, and it was that fascination which led me to start researching Foo Fighters studio history many years ago. I now want to pass that knowledge on to other fans, and try to make sure it is never lost to time.
