Grohl, Novoselic Jam

Former Nirvana men Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic played together recently in a Los Angeles studio. The duo – recently united in a legal battle against their late band mate Kurt Cobain’s wife Courtney Love over a proposed Nirvana box set – were joined by Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, L7’s singer/guitarist Donita Sparks, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and legendary session drummer Jim Keltner ( John Lennon, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan ). Although the impromptu supergroup laid down tracks, there are at present no plans to release them. The jam was the latest in superstar collaborations… Read more »


Courtney Love Sues Grohl And Novoselic, Blocks Nirvana Rarity

Courtney Love has blocked the surviving members of Nirvana – Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic – from releasing one of the band’s final tracks, and she’s suing them for control of the group’s legacy. A Seattle judge has granted Love a preliminary injunction preventing the release of a Nirvana song called “You Know You’re Right,” which Grohl and Novoselic planned to include on a Nirvana box set due this fall. Nirvana recorded the Kurt Cobain-penned tune in January 1994, three months before his suicide. “The fight is over control of Nirvana,” said Warren Rheaume, attorney for Grohl and Novoselic. “Hopefully… Read more »


12 Best Alternative Performances From The MTV VMAs

The MTV Video Music Awards isn’t just a superficial awards show. It’s an institution that has crafted some of pop culture’s most iconic moments. Frankly, no other awards show has created massive ripples in the cultural zeitgeist such as Miley Cryus’ famous twerking moment and Beyoncé’s baby bump reveal alongside bands such as Alien Ant Farm playing their cover of “Smooth Criminal” or Rage Against The Machine and Limp Bizkit feuding onstage in 2000. However, many viewers equate the MTV VMAs to purely celebrating the efforts of most American Top 40 artists. This could not be further from the truth.… Read more »

Nirvana bassist seeks county office

Nirvana’s former bassist is running for clerk of a rural county to protest Washington state’s method of letting candidates name their own party affiliation. Krist Novoselic is running for clerk of Wahkiakum County in western Washington. Novoselic is head of his local chapter of the Grange, a civic organization. His election paperwork declares that he is running under the “Grange Party” banner, even though the Grange is not a political party. Novoselic said that he is protesting the state’s system that lets candidates say what party they prefer when running for office. He says that is confusing for voters and… Read more »


Ex-Alice In Chains Members Performing With Damageplan Singer

Forget the stage, it’s been almost a decade since Jerry Cantrell, Sean Kinney and Mike Inez – a.k.a. 75 percent of ’90s grunge icons Alice in Chains – have even been in the same room. Sure, they’ve jammed with each other in various permutations since Alice last played a show together (a 1996 taping of MTV’s “Unplugged”), but never all three together. So when they announced that they’d be taking the stage again this month, it had to be for a good reason. “We all saw what happened with the tsunamis in Southeast Asia. It was such an overwhelming tragedy,”… Read more »


Grunge-Rock Pioneer Stumps for U.S. Election Reform

Washington – Eleven years after the demise of his million-selling rock band Nirvana, Krist Novoselic is back on the road, but this time he’s getting out of bed before noon. Novoselic, whose bass guitar anchored one of the most popular and influential bands of the 1990s, now spends his time pushing for voting reforms that he thinks could change the cynicism many people feel about U.S. politics. It’s a gig that requires him to wear a suit and tie and speak to audiences that measure in the dozens, rather than the thousands. But Novoselic, 39, sees parallels with the heady… Read more »


Nirvana's Box Set Finally Released

Seattle – Nirvana’s box set, delayed three years by litigation, was finally released Tuesday, introducing hundreds of thousands of fans to rare recordings and even living-room video of the grunge rockers. The four-disc set, “With the Lights Out,” includes 81 tracks, 68 of them previously unreleased. It was initially planned for release in 2001 – for the 10th anniversary of the album “Nevermind” – but a dispute between Courtney Love, the widow of frontman Kurt Cobain, and the surviving bandmates delayed the project. The sides settled their legal issues in September 2002, allowing work on the box set to resume.… Read more »


Sub Pop Unearths Rarities for Nirvana Box Set

New York – The upcoming Nirvana box set, “With the Lights Out,” features 18 previously unreleased audio tracks and four video clips from the archives of venerable indie label Sub Pop, to which the Kurt Cobain-led band was signed early in its career. Included are three Leadbelly covers recorded in August 1989 at Seattle’s Reciprocal Studios, with assistance from Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan and then-Trees drummer Mark Pickerel. Cobain had designs on forming a group around these players, to be named Jury or Lithium, but it never materialized. “When Lanegan was in the studio recording… Read more »


Fans Mark 10 Years Since Cobain Death

Kurt Cobain and his band, Nirvana, spent only three years in the public eye, and they released only three studio albums. But what he accomplished before committing suicide 10 years ago Monday at age 27 – deciding it was “better to burn out than fade away,” as he quoted Neil Young in his suicide note – was remarkable. Beneath this bridge above the muddy banks of the Wishkah River, a troubled young Cobain would come to escape his unhappy home and the persistent gray drizzle of the Washington coast. Among the cracking concrete supports, he would smoke pot and drink… Read more »
