Personal Quote:

How Kurt could even think we'd make a ripple in this ridiculous mainstream world of polished pop music was beyond me. It was beyond everyone. It made absolutely no sense. It was simply unimaginable. It was the type of hopeless, shallow aspirations that we had been conditioned to reject, ultimately relieving us of any intention other than to just be ourselves. See more »

Trivia:

During a trip to Chicago at age 13, a cousin took him to his first concert where he saw local punk rock band "Naked Raygun" perform. That particular event was a milestone in Dave's life in that he knew there and then what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. See more »
