Foo Fighters grew out of the ashes of Nirvana, but with one important difference: Dave Grohl moved from behind the drum kit to out front at the mic. Working alone at first, Grohl polished up songs he'd been writing over the years before constructing an actual band to play them out on the road. A one-off name, shorthand for UFOs in the World War II era, stuck even as former Nirvana touring guitarist Pat Smear, bassist Nate Mendel, second guitarist Chris Chiflett and then drummer Taylor Hawkins rounded out Foo Fighters' longest-tenured lineup. Four of the group's first seven albums won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, before Grohl launched an ambitious project titled 'Sonic Highways' that included both a coast-to-coast musical documentary and a guest-packed studio album. Grohl eventually reunited with Nirvana producer Butch Vig, and has also previously worked with Paul McCartney, Them Crooked Vultures (featuring John Paul Jones), Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty, the latter of whom invited him to join the Heartbreakers after Nirvana's split.
