Grohl could still be in Cobain movie

Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl is absent from upcoming Kurt Cobain movie Montage Of Heck – but the director says that could still change.

Brett Morgen interviewed the Foo Fighters frontman for the film, but didn’t have time to add it to the version shown at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend.

He tells Billboard: “We had a locked print. Trying to re-edit a film with a new interview in 10 days is kind of difficult.

“This is the picture I wanted – I didn’t want there to be a lot of people in the film.”

But he adds: “I hope we’ll see a version with Grohl some time.”

The moviemaker aimed to make a film for Cobain’s daughter and co-producer Frances Bean, saying: “She is the glue. Frances and I share the same vision of what this should be. People associated with Nirvana, Dave and Krist wanted to do this for Frances.”

Grohl returns to the UK with the Foos in the summer:

May 25: Sunderland Stadium Of Light

May 27: Manchester Emirates Old Trafford

Jun 19: London Wembley Stadium

Jun 20: London Wembley Stadium

Jun 23: Edinburgh BT Murrayfield Stadium

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
