Dave Grohl shared his feeling regarding loosing Kurt:
“When Kurt died, I remember the next day and thinking, ‘I still get to live,’ so I’m going to live every day like it’s my last one. So, I’m going to live every day like it’s my last one. Even if it’s the worst day, I’m gonna try to appreciate it. I still feel that way. I never want to die. I honestly feel like if I get to do this and I have these beautiful kids and as long as I can [drum], I’m all good.”
Dave said after his friend died he couldn’t listen to Nirvana’s songs – “I went through a really dark period where I couldn’t really even listen to the radio because it broke my heart just to hear music” – Dave said in 2018.
