A few weeks ago, the remaining members of Nirvana reunited at an exclusive show in Cal Jam in San Bernardino. Now, in an exclusive interview with Kerrang Dave Grohl has detailed what performing together for the first time since 2014 was like.
It was the first full set that the band had played together in 20 years. The set consisted of 19 tracks, that were performed alongside some legendary names like Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, St. Vincent, Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis, and Deer Tick’s John McAuley.
In the interview, Grohl has detailed “When Pat, Krist and I sat down to go through those songs in a small rehearsal room with concrete walls, it fuckin’ sounded like Nirvana. It was like being shot into outer space. Being able to play that drum fill and break into the chorus… it’s spiritual, physical, emotional.”
He continued “We would look at each other and smile, but the emotions would kind of go in waves, because there was someone missing – and you wish that you could still share those songs with Kurt.”
Novoselic has detailed his reuniong experience, sharing that he was “beaming” during the performance of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’. “I will cherish that moment for a long time because it was pretty special,” he continued.
