    Default How's 'bout a DLR-fronted Nirvana?

    Dave's reaction on his Facebook page: "I'm in. D-Ro"

    Kurt Cobain was Nirvana.

    I hated seeing that Paul McCartney/Nirvana mashup being billed as McCartney fronting Nirvana. It was a collaboration on an original piece of music (that I found completely uninspiring but you can't always catch lightning in a bottle) by four musicians each of whom were once members of a legendary act.

    If Grohl, Novoselic and Smear wanted to collaborate with different artists more power to them ... but calling it "Nirvana" would be a disservice to Cobain and his legacy as an artist.

    It's Nirvana, does anyone really care that much?

    I really, really don't think it's in Daves' best interest to be fronting another band. Let alone Nirvana....

    As long as Courtney is alive, you'll never see the name Nirvana ever used, so nothing to worry about. Secondly, it was obviously some lighthearted random comment to a question that a reporter asked Noveselic. Dave heard about it and jokingly said he was in. Cool events, but non issue.

    Also, The Daily Beast is an Onion-type satire group. This video is just a goof.

    If Cobain never killed himself and the band had simply stopped after In Utero, but then decided to come back today, they'd still be playing to a lot of people.

    He didn't kill himself, she had him killed.. I've always believed that.

    Dave Grohl would have no reason to do more than a one-off.

    And people will go see lots of garbage you're right.

    I'd LOVE to see it just to make Courtney Love's head explode.

    No disrespect to Kurt but,
    Imagine Dave playing and singing Nirvana songs on acoustic---kinda like the unplugged dvd. We all know how bad ass Dave is on the guitar, imagine his take and style on those songs.
    Hey Dave --- play us some guitar on TheRothShow !!!!

    Brett is not a fan and has never hid that.
    Feels like he's not objective about Niravana though.....

    Well, I was going to start a thread with all the authentic Van Halen news we have to jaw about, but you know how that goes.
