|NFC News Krist: How I met Dave|
In his blog, Krist Novoselic writes about how he met Dave Grohl:
"I remember going to the airport and picking this dude up. He was easygoing--just like some guy named Paul McCartney told the Times. He brought up his drum set--a yellow TAMA with a 26" kick. The man understood John Bonham (Led Zeppelin) and Dale Crover (the Melvins), and this kick proved it. We wasted no time and rehearsed the next day. I knew Dave was coming, so beforehand I'd found a rehearsal place in Tacoma's north end."
Read the full article here which also gives props to Chad Channing and mentions how Nirvana worked with Grohl in the beginning.
