Dave Grohl is remembering Kurt Cobain’s “gross” apartment.

In a new interview, the Nirvana drummer recalled, “I moved in with Kurt and this is fall 1990. Kurt lived in this apartment that was super duper tiny. I slept on the couch. He had this turtle aquarium thing that stunk so bad. It was so gross. There was a hole in the window. So it was freezing inside. It was just squalor.”

Grohl went on to say that he associates Mark Lanegan’s record, ‘The Winding Sheet’, with that period of his life. Where’s the grossest place you ever lived?

What album do you associate with the best time of your life so far?
