A new biography about the life and times of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl asserts that the former Nirvana drummer nearly quit the band in 1993 -- after hearing Kurt Cobain discuss his shortcomings at great length while on a flight from Seattle to Los Angeles.
During an interview with Jon Stewart, surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic admitted the low budget recording of 'Nevermind' was somewhat of a fairy tale come true. The group, along with producer Butch Vig, sat down with Stewart to discuss the 20th anniversary of the iconic album on Saturday night (Sept. 24) in a special "Town Hall" broadcast on SiriusXM satellite radio.
Any self-respecting rock fan worth his or her salt knows that the end of the week -- Sept. 24, if you want to be exact -- marks the 20th anniversary of the watershed album 'Nevermind' by Nirvana. The album single-handedly defined alternative rock in the '90s.
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.
Original 'Nevermind' producer Butch Vig has fond memories of working with Nirvana and Kurt Cobain during their early 90s recording sessions. He also has some gripes. As the band prepares to release a remastered version of the album on Sept. 27, Vig talked to Rolling Stone about the difference in opinions that ultimately resulted in Andy Wallace being brought in to mix the project.
A proposal to rename a bridge in Kurt Cobain's hometown of Aberdeen, Wash., has been rejected by the city council in a 10-1 vote. However, a piece of land next to the bridge will be called Kurt Cobain landing.
