Foo Fighters is an American Rock band led by Dave Grohl. It was founded in 1994 after the dissolution of Nirvana. The band started out as a one-man project, releasing its first album in 1995. Grohl recorded all instruments and vocals but realised that he needed a backing band to perform at concerts. The Foo Fighters recruited Nate Mendel, Pat Smear and later Taylor Hawkins and Chris Shiflett and since the release of the first record they edited 8 more to become one of the most important Rock bands of today. Dave Grohl is worldwide recognized as the coolest dude in the industry and it shows well at concerts.
