I thought it was best that I kept my songs to myself." Grohl occasionally booked studio time to record demos and covers, and issued a cassette of some, Pocketwatch, under the pseudonym "Late!" in 1992.

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Aug 5, 2017 4:30PM Last night's Foo Fighters show at The Metro was the third time I've seen them in that venue, and definitely the wildest show I've.

However, Grohl and Stahl were unable to co-operate as songwriters; Grohl told Kerrang! in 1999, "in those few weeks it just seemed like the three of us were moving in one direction and Franz wasn't". Grohl was distraught over the decision to fire Stahl, as the two had been friends since childhood.

Foo Fighters play last-minute Lollapalooza aftershow. Brian Wollitz added this on August 7, 2017. Although the Foo Fighters weren't on Lollapalooza's lineup, the band decided to schedule a last-minute aftershow on Friday at the Metro in Chicago. In front of a 1,100 person crowd,. Before the release of the album, Capitol Records president Gary Gersh was forced out of the label. Given Grohl's history with Gersh, Foo Fighters' contract had included a "key man clause" that allowed them to leave the label upon Gersh's departure. They subsequently left Capitol and signed with RCA, who later acquired the rights to the band's Capitol albums. Frontman Kurt Cobain was found dead in his Seattle home on April 8, 1994, and Nirvana disbanded. Grohl received offers to work with various artists; press rumors indicated he might join Pearl Jam, and he almost accepted a permanent position as drummer in Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Grohl instead entered Robert Lang Studios in October 1994 to record 15 of the 40 songs he had written. With the exception of a guitar part on "X-Static", played by Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs, Grohl played every instrument and sang every vocal on the tracks. "I was supposed to just join another band and be a drummer the rest of my life," Grohl later said. "I thought that I would rather do what no one expected me to do. I enjoy writing music and I enjoy trying to sing, and there's nothing anyone can really do to discourage me." Grohl completed an album's worth of material in five days and handed out cassette copies of the sessions to his friends for feedback. The 2017 BottleRock lineup has booked headliners in the Foo Fighters, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Maroon 5, while the long list of supporting acts includes Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Modest Mouse, Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals, The Roots, Band of Horses, Fitz and The Tantrums, Gavin DeGraw The first single from Wasting Light, "Rope", was released to radio in February 2011.

Wasting Light debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, being the first Foo Fighters album to do so. Other singles for the album included "Walk", "Arlandria", "These Days", and "Bridge Burning"
