Jon Stewart to Host Q&A With Surviving Members of Nirvana
To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of their game-changing album 'Nevermind,' the surviving two members of Nirvana, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, will participate in a Q&A session for SiriusXM. Jon Stewart of 'The Daily Show' will host the Q&A, dubbed 'SiriusXM Town Hall With Nirvana.' The event is scheduled to begin at 8 PM ET and will run for two hours on the satellite radio broadcaster on Sept. 24.
While we're not sure of the connection between the always hilarious Stewart and the Seattle band, this event is certainly worth tuning in for. The Q&A will air on Channel 34, which is called 'Lithium.' Astute Nivana fans will recognize that association, as 'Lithium' is the name of one of the notable singles from 'Nevermind.'
In addition to Nirvana's rhythm section of Grohl and Novoselic, 'Nevermind' producer Butch Vig -- who recently revealed band leader Kurt Cobain was a bit difficult to work with -- will partake in the Q&A.
'Nevermind' was a cultural watershed, selling 10 million copies in the US and ushering in the era of grunge and alternative rock that dominated and defined the '90s. The band ended when frontman/guitarist Cobain committed suicide in April 1994.
In addition to this rare reconvening of the remaining members of Nirvana, SiriusXM will also launch 'Nevermind Radio,' a specially programmed, all-Nirvana channel which will kick off Sept. 23 and run through Sept. 28.
SiriusXM subscribers can enter to win the chance to sit in on the Q&A session and to be able to pose their questions directly to Grohl, Novoselic and Vig.
