Nirvana Members Discuss Recent Reunion

The surviving members of Nirvana recently discussed their reunion at the Cal Jam festival in San Bernardino, California earlier this month.

In a new interview with rock magazine Kerrang!, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic discussed their experience reuniting the surviving Nirvana members for a six-song performance at the Foo Fighters Cal Jam festival.

At the end of Foo Fighters’s show, Grohl, Pat Smear and Novoselic, performed a six-song set with Deer Tick frontman John McCauley and legendary rocker Joan Jett providing lead vocals.

John led the vocals for “Serve The Servants”, “Scentless Apprentice” and “In Bloom,” while Joan handled the vocals for “Breed”, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “All Apologies.”

“After we played the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I considered the idea that, if there was an opportunity, we could do it again”, Grohl told Kerrang. “…But it’s delicate territory, and you can’t treat it like just another show. It’s very complicated, and very special. In those moments, when it just happens naturally, I think is the best way.”

The Cal Jam performance was the first time the former Nirvana bandmates have officially reunited since the band’s Rock Hall induction in 2014.

In December last year, Grohl, Novoselic, and Smear shared the stage at a Foo Fighters show to play the ’90s Foo track “Big Me,” which Grohl and Novoselic originally played together.

Grohl and Novoselic had also performed Nirvana’s “Molly’s Lips” at a Seattle Foo Fighters show in September.
