Meanwhile, it has recently been revealed what the late Kurt Cobain thought of his bandmate Dave Grohl's singing.

The Smells Like Teen Spirit band's former manager Danny Goldberg released a book on the frontman, Serving The Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain, in which he shared his memories of the grunge icon, who tragically lost his life 25 years ago this year.

Speaking to The Washington Post, Goldberg recalled: "Kurt just said to me, ‘I don’t think you realise how good a singer Dave is, but I hear him singing harmonies every night.’

"It was like he was really doing it so I would know this because there was this very fraternal side of him and a sweet side of him, but also it had a touch of envy in it. I mean he was competitive"
