Dave Grohl, former drummer of Nirvana, formed this band after Cobain's death, using material he was reluctant to share (worried about "ruining the chemistry"). Krist Novosellic (also from Nirvana) was considered as a bandmate (Grohl didn't want it to be a solo project), but there was a concern they'd be seen as "a reincarnation of Nirvana."

The band was returning from a concert when their van was involved in an accident, killing lead singer Jack Vigliatura, bassist Bill White, and tour manager Tim Bender.

In 1984 and 1985 Frankie Goes To Hollywood made quite a stir. Their most notorious hit, "Relax" hit the Top 10 all over the planet (#1 in their native UK). They put out merchandise to stoke the hype.

The Bulsara family moved into a house in the Feltham neighborhood in London - only a few hundred yards away from where a fellow student and future astrophysicist named Brian May lived. As Paul Harvey used to say on the radio, "and now you know the rest of the story".
