Re: Dave Grohl
I can't really judge that 'cause i haven't read dave's biography yet,
but i have read kurdts and his diaries and i'm telling you, he may have done some pretty nasty things but you got to count in what hes been throu... he wasn't made for the musicBusiness.
and I agree that those are all great bands and alice in chains may be AS good as nirvana, the rest still great too. you certainly forgot pearl jam there too, and i'm sure there are a lot of other great bands (mostly grunge or stonerrock) too. but that doesn't make nirvana less good. In fact the only band that beats nirvana in the ninetees imo is Kyuss.
so nirvana is certainly one of the best bands of the ninetees!
