Call it a crazy idea, but it’s already happened before — once with Paul McCartney fronting the band back in 2012 and again at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony in 2014, when Grohl, Krist Novoselic and touring guitarist Pat Smear performed a bunch of the band’s hits with guest vocalists like Lorde and Joan Jett.
Now, speaking with The Times, Grohl says he’s not sure whether it could happen again.
“I got together with my old bandmates, Krist [Novoselic] and Pat [Smear, now with Foo Fighters], and guests including Joan Jett and Lorde, and we played those songs again,” he reminisced about the big night at the Rock Hall three years ago.
“It sounded just like it did, but of course with one thing missing. We hadn’t played a Nirvana set since Kurt died. Could we do that again? I don’t know.”
It comes after the Foo Fighter teamed up with the great Rick Astley to troll fans with a ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ & Nirvana mashup.
Meanwhile, another legendary rock band who’ve lost their lead singer — Divinyls — have just announced an unexpected reunion show in Perth, with The Preatures’ Izzi Manfredi stepping in on vocals for the late Chrissy Amphlett.
