Tom nearly convinced Dave Grohl to become a heartbreaker.
In late 1994, the suicide of Kurt Cobain had effectively ended Nirvana, and Dave Grohl was at a crossroads. Should he go forward with the solo demos he was recording (which eventually became the first Foo Fighters album), or accept Tom's offer to replace fired drummer Stan Lynch and join the heartbreakers? We all know what choice Grohl made, and considering the millions of albums of the Foo Fighters have sold, it was undeniably the right one. Still, it’s interesting to consider how Grohl might have affected the band’s sound if he had joined Petty and company. The interplay between Grohl’s grunge background, and the mellower direction the Heartbreakers were going in would have been fascinating. ~
