Dave Grohl's 1st public appearance after Kurt Cobain's death


June 4, 1994 was Dave Grohl's first public appearance & performance since the death of fellow Nirvana band member Kurt Cobain. It was at MTV's 1994 Movie Awards and he played drums for the band "Backbeat" which performed the songs on the soundtrack for the 1994 British-German Beatles film "Backbeat".

I still remember sitting next to my VCR and waiting for "Backbeat" to come on and perform and being really excited about Dave Grohl's return. I'm glad that we recorded this and we hope you're glad too!!

The band consisted of some of our favorite performers of that era which included:

Dave Pirner (Soul Asylum): vocals
Greg Dulli (The Afghan Whigs): vocals
Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth): guitar
Don Fleming (Gumball): guitar
Mike Mills (R.E.M.): bass guitar
Dave Grohl (Nirvana): drums
Henry Rollins (Rollins Band): vocals on "Love Me Tender" (not in this video)

The songs they played were "Money (That's What I Want)" and "Long Tall Sally" (both are not Beatles songs).

This shit is fucking rare and it's very cool to see some of the "main players of the 90's" get together and play live. It's nice to see them just fucking rock! Once in a lifetime performance pretty much. This won't happen again.....
