"When Kurt died I was lost. I was numb. The music I had devoted my life to had now betrayed me. I had no voice. I turned off the radio. I put away my drums. I couldn’t bear to hear someone else’s voice singing about pain, or joy."
- Dave Grohl
"What I like about this is the fact that you see all of the artifice and you see how low rent it is. There’s a mop, which is kind of a great reference to the ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ [video] when the janitor is dancing with the mop. [Eventually] the band started to flag. Kurt especially was tired. They had to do other photo shoots after this one. Kurt, God bless him, at the end of the couple hours was like, ‘Are you sure you got enough. We can take some more?’ I should have taken him up on it. But this is my favorite photo from the day. They do look happy. They do look like a unit. They look like a band. I didn’t dig it up until recently."
