Dave Grohl opens up on Nirvana reunion
Dave Grohl has revealed that reuniting with fellow Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic and producer Butch Vig was “a little weird”.
The Foo Fighters frontman recently invited his old bassist into the studio to guest on a track for the band’s upcoming album, their first time recording together in over a decade. The session was also overseen by producer Butch Vig, who worked on Nirvana’s classic ‘Nevermind’ LP.
Grohl said of the session: “To be in the same room as Krist and Butch for the first time in so long was a little weird. But it was cool that we survived. As he was leaving here I said in a cute voice, 'I love you, Krist', and he said in a similar voice, 'I love you, too!' "
Nirvana’s reign as kings of the grunge scene was quickly ended when frontman Kurt Cobain committed suicide in April 1994. It’s been speculated that Cobain could not handle the large scale of the band’s success. Dave Grohl says that he worries about other bands in the same position.
“I see new bands that pop up and sell a bazillion records and playing arenas overnight, and I think 'Oh my god, that's just gonna destroy your band,” he explained. “And then I remember that's what happened to me, when I was a kid. But that's what f***s people up.”
