Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic Talk Preparing for Nirvana’s Rock Hall Induction, Band’s Future

PJ Harvey was on the band's A-list of possible performers, but "she couldn't make it."

Minds were blown last week when surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic got together to perform songs by their former band for the first time since Kurt Cobain walked the earth, about two decades ago.

First, they performed (along with former touring guitarist and Grohl’s fellow Foo Fighter Pat Smear) at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday night (April 10), joined by Joan Jett (“Smells Like Teen Spirit”), Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth (“Aneurysm”), Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent (“Lithium”) and Lorde (“All Apologies”). Later that night, they performed a longer set at Brooklyn metal bar St. Vitus with Jett, Gordon and Clark (Lorde had to fly to California for her scheduled performance at Coachella), along with J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. and John McCauley of Deer Tick (he also fronts a Nirvana tribute band, “Deervana”).

Grohl and Novoselic both discussed the epic night with Rolling Stone, revealing that they also wanted PJ Harvey to perform with them that night.
