Nirvana's Surviving Members Reunite at 'Secret' Foo Fighters Show
According to a report by Spin Magazine, the surviving members of Nirvana regrouped for the first time in more than a decade at a "secret" Foo Fighters show in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Of course, being that Nirvana was officially just a trio, all that means is that Foo Fighters' frontman Dave Grohl (pictured) was joined by original Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. However, the duo were also joined by Nirvana's touring guitarist Pat Smear. Grohl, who sings and plays guitar for the Foos, played drums for Nirvana. The hugely influential group disbanded in 1994 following leader Kurt Cobain's suicide.
To those paying close attention, Tuesday night's reunion, while unexpected, should come as little surprise -- it's been widely reported that Grohl recently employed his old bassist's services for a track which will appear on the new, forthcoming Foo Fighters album. That album, incidentally, is also being produced by Butch Vig, who masterminded Nirvana's 1991 seminal breakthrough, 'Nevermind.'
While the Foo Fighters used the intimate show to showcase some of their new material, the short Nirvana segment saw Novoselic and Smear join Grohl on stage to perform 'Marigold' -- originally a b-side for the hit single 'Heart Shaped Box,' it's the only original composition that Grohl contributed to Nirvana. While many celebrities wereallegedly spotted in the audience, we're guessing that Courtney Love was not one of them.
