Before he joined Nirvana and created Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl was the drummer in the Washington, D.C., punk band Scream. The last album Scream recorded was 1993’s Fumble, which the band recently reissued on Dischord Records. In honor of the reissue, Grohl posted a reflection of his time with Scream.
“Once upon a time, when I was just a wee lad, I played drums in a punk rock band from the Washington, D.C. area called Scream,” Grohl wrote in a Facebook post. “I had grown up buying their records and going to see their live shows, and eventually had the honor of becoming their drummer at the age of 17. Fresh out of high school, I started touring the world with them from 1987-1990.”
Grohl adds of Fumble, “Check it out. It might just change your life. It sure changed mine.”
Perhaps listening to Scream will help fill the Dave Grohl-shaped void in your life, as the Foo Fighters are currently taking a break. Although they’re definitely not breaking up.
