Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl says that despite his problems with drugs and depression, Kurt Cobain was one of the funniest people he has ever met.

Grohl was speaking about the recording of Nirvana’s legendary MTV Unplugged session, available on DVD on Monday, and said that Cobain was continuously cracking jokes off camera.

The former Nirvana drummer said: “I remember it seemed like he was having a good time because a lot of talk between songs was hilariously funny.

“I don’t know how many people realise it but Kurt was one of the funniest people I have ever met.”

Bassist Krist Novoselic said of the magical night in November 1993: “The show has an aura of its own. Kurt’s death was a huge media event and that unplugged performance turned into this kind of requiem.”

He continued to The Sun: “Kurt was in compelling form. He had that energy for expression. There was something about him. You can hear it and you can see it (on the DVD).”
