Nobody ever thought a Nirvana reunion would ever happen, but it did just earlier this week. Dave Grohl decided to give Nirvana/Foo Fighter fans a gift by reuniting the surviving members of Nirvana at a secret Foo Fighters show in Los Angeles. Yes, Krist Novoselic was there to play bass, and the former Nirvana touring guitarist, Pat Smear, was there to play guitar, while Dave Grohl played the drums and sang.
The Foo Fighters were mainly there to perform songs from their upcoming new album they’re recording with legendary producer, Butch Vig, but the reunited Nirvana did perform one Nirvana song which is “Marigold”, a b-side from the “In Utero” sessions. Nirvana didn’t play any of their big hits or anything like that.
More on it, here.
Is this a tease that Dave plans on reuniting Nirvana full time for a tour, so the band can play all their big hits? Who knows, maybe that will happen. Of course, it isn’t really a real Nirvana reunion without Kurt Cobain. I think everyone knows that. It’s a good thing Dave did this, ’cause I’m sure that is what Kurt would have wanted.
The band played, “Marigold”, because that was the only Nirvana song which Dave Grohl sang the lead vocals on, and not Kurt.
Here’s hoping for more Nirvana shows if Dave and Krist agrees with it!
