Dave Grohl

Novoselic, Grohl and the Bad Communicator

Recently I found a letter that Kurt sent me in 1992. It's the one thing I would be heartbroken if my house were to burn down. I was upset with Kurt because I hadn't talked with him for a while, and some decisions had been made without me. He got word that I was upset, so he sent me a letter that basically talked about: Don't worry, this fame thing will blow over and we'll hopefully come down to the level of the Pixies or Sonic Youth, and how there are times he wished he could break up the band and start a new band called Novoselic, Grohl and the Bad Communicator. At the end of the letter it says: I'm sorry if I've been distant. I want you to know that your role in this band, as a member and a brother, is lethally important. And at the end . . . it just says bye-bye. But that, to me, is what I rest my head on at night, is remembering not only my version but Kurt's as well. 2002
