Nirvana Almost Reformed?
Although Dave Grohl says he’s been reluctant to play any music from Nirvana live in the past, performing recently at Sound City Players gigs with former Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear has made it more of a possibility. In fact, Grohl revealed to NME that the three of them had discussed doing it — and asking British alternative diva P.J. Harvey to sing. Grohl explained, “Every once in a while we talk about it. For the Sound City gig here in London (last month), we were thinking about musicians that we could invite because Stevie Nicks and John Fogerty couldn’t make it. Someone came up with the idea of doing a Nirvana song with P.J. Harvey.”
Grohl added, “Kurt (Cobain) loved her and we love her and we thought, ‘Yeah, what would we do?’ I said, ‘God, what if we were to do “Milk It” from In Utero with Polly (P.J. Harvey) singing?’ We all looked at each other like, ‘Whoa, that would be amazing,’ and then she couldn’t do it.”
