    Explanation
    When Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic first formed a band in 1986, they first recruited Bob McFadden. Together, the three performed together as The Sellouts, mainly playing covers of Creedence Clearwater Revival. The Sellouts quickly faded away, leaving the band without a drummer. So in early 1987 Cobain and Novoselic recruited Aaron Burckhard, who would remain with the band until December. They would then practice with Dale Corver from The Melvins, but he was never an official member of the band, as he quickly moved to San Francisco.

    Their next official drummer would be Dave Foster, who was only with the band for a few months in 1988, leaving just as they were gearing up to record their first full album. A mutual friend introduced Cobain and Novoselic to Chad Channing, who recorded with band on their debut album "Bleach." Creative differences would cause Channing to leave in 1990.

    Mudhoney drummer Dave Peters briefly filled the void, playing seven tour dates in 1990 with the Nirvana. Later that year, in September, they were introduced to Dave Grohl, whose D.C. band Scream had recently broke up. Grohl would remain Nirvana's drummer until Kurt Cobain's death, recording on the albums "Nevermind" and "In Utero."

    Explanation
    When Tom Petty released his first solo album "Full Moon Fever" in 1989, every Heartbreaker contributed to at least one song on the album, except for drummer Stan Lynch. This could be the reason behind Lynch's growing tensions within the band, as he may have felt slighted from not being a part of the album. Lynch would remain a Heartbreaker until October 2, 1994. However, The band was scheduled to perform on Saturday Night Live on November 19, to promote Petty's second solo album "Wildflowers."

    Petty asked Dave Grohl to fill in on drums for the show. Grohl recently found himself without a band as Kurt Cobain's suicide back in April brought an end to Nirvana. Petty thought Grohl was such a nice fit to the band, that after the SNL performance, he asked Grohl if he would like to be the new Heartbreaker drummer, officially replacing Lynch. Grohl declined, wanting to form a band of his own, which wound up being Foo Fighters.

    Steve Ferrone, who was the drummer for Average White Band in the 70s, as well as a popular session drummer, became Lynch's official replacement, playing his first show as a Heartbreaker on February 28, 1995. He would remain the band's drummer until Petty's death in 2017.
