Dave Grohl Almost Joined Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers After Playing SNL Gig

After the death of Kurt Cobain, Nirvana was finished and Dave Grohl wondered if his future might be in drumming for other bands.  On November 19, 1994 Grohl played Saturday Night Live with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers filling in their recently fired drummer Stan Lynch.  Here’s the SNL band photo with Grohl

Petty asked him to join permanently, but Grohl declined the invitation and decided to start his own band (Foo Fighters) so Petty then hired drummer Steve Ferrone. 

The video has since been removed from youtube due to copyright issues from NBC  but you can hear the audio of DG playing “Honey Bee” below.
