Grohl Feared Cobain Wanted To Fire Him

FOO FIGHTERS frontman DAVE GROHL was terrified late rocker KURT COBAIN wanted to throw him out of NIRVANA during their early 1990s heyday.

Grohl has discussed his anxieties about being in the phenomenally successful group for the first time, and admits he feared Cobain was going to ask him to leave the SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT outfit because he was unhappy with Grohl's drum playing.

He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I don't think I've ever told anyone this, but there were times when Kurt was really unhappy with the way I played drums. I could hear him talking about how much he thought I sucked.

"But he'd never say it to me. If I'd confront him about it - 'Is there a problem? If you want me to leave, just ask' - he'd say 'No, no, no.' Most of that happened later, around IN UTERO (the band's last studio album, released in 1993). That's when I think Kurt became unhappy with what was happening in the band."
