Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters was founded back in 1995 by the bands singer Dave Grohl. At first the band consisted only of Grolh himself, but just before the release of the self titled album the same year he invited Nate Mendel on bass, Pat Smear on guitar and William Goldsmith on drums.
However, the group did not stay the same long as Goldsmith left during the recording of the bands second album, and to add to that not long after that Smear also left. Taylor Hawkins then took over on the drums and Franz Stahl took over for Smear, but yet another change happened when Stahl left not long before the third album was about the be recorded.
The band finished the third album and then invited Chris Shiflett to join the band on guitar, since then the core band members have stayed the same.

Foo Fighters is currently one of the most popular rock groups in the world, all of their albums have been nominated in the "Best Rock Album" category at the Grammy's, and they have won three times.
During tours they also have some additional band members with them most of the time, including the former member Pat Smear on guitar, Rami Jaffee on piano, Jessy Greene on violin and cello, and last Drew Hester on percussion and drums.

Current Band Members:
Dave Grohl - Vocals, Guitar, Piano
Taylor Hawkins - Drums, Backing Vocals
Nate Mendel - Bass
Chris Shiflett - Guitar, Backing Vocals
Pat Smear - Rhythm Guitar
