How to live on One dollar a day: Nirvana edition
“There was a gas station across the street from the apartment that Kurt and I lived in and they had a three for 99 cent corn dog deal,” Grohl said as he reminisced about the early days of Nirvana. In an interview with BBC Breakfast he continued to tell the story.
“We had no money so we didn’t have food, but we did have 99 cents a day. If you could manage to budget three corn dogs in a 24-hour period, you could survive on that, and we did. What we really survived on was the music.
That’s the thing, is that if we didn’t have those songs, or we didn’t have that band, or didn’t have the music, I think everyone would’ve just packed up and went home.”
