Previously, Dave Grohl was the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana. He formed Foo Fighters after the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994. The band has a sixth album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. It includes a song he wrote in tribute to two miners trapped in a mine collapse in Australia. When the men were trapped, they requested an iPod with Foo Fighters songs sent down to them. Grohl heard about the request, sent them a note, and then later met with one of the miners. Grohl also performed as a drummer on Tenacious D's debut album, and he later appeared in the 2006 movie Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny. [Broadcast Date: October 22, 2007]
