Grohl: 'Cbgb Was A Dump'
Foo Fighters rocker Dave Grohl wasn't among the mourners for recently shut-down New York City nightclub CBGB, because he played there once and it was a "dump". The iconic venue, a favourite of rockers like Patti Smith and BAD BRAINS, closed for good last month (OCT06) - prompting an outpouring of tributes and grief. But Grohl has more down to earth memories of the club, when he performed there with a former band. He says, "I played there with Scream in 1987 or something. It was a f**king dump. It was gross"
