All Nirvana Members on same stage for the first time in 13 years
Three-quarters of Nirvana reunited on stage for the fist time since 1997 at Paladino’s in Tarzana, California
Nirvana was formed in the late 80’s in Seattle. Fronted band was Kurt Cobain. During his career, band released three studio albums. Nirvana split after the spring of 1994,when Cobain committed suicide.
(Blabbermouth)Three-quarters of NIRVANA’s “In Utero” touring lineup — Krist Novoselic (bass), Dave Grohl (guitar, vocals) and Pat Smear (guitar) — reunited on stage for the fist time since 1997 during last night’s (Tuesday, December 21) “secret” concert by Grohl’s post-NIRVANA band FOO FIGHTERS at Paladino’s in Tarzana, California. The trio performed the song “Marigold”, which was written and composed by Grohl and was first released on “Pocketwatch”, an album Grohl issued under the pseudonym LATE! in 1992.
“Marigold” (originally titled “Color Pictures of a Marigold”) is perhaps best known for the version that was recorded and released in 1993 by NIRVANA as a B-Side to the “Heart-Shaped Box” single. A live version was later featured on the FOO FIGHTERS‘ release “Skin And Bones” in 2006, garnering “Marigold” the notable distinction of being the only song released by both NIRVANA and FOO FIGHTERS, two of Grohl’s most distinguished bands.
Novoselic recently recorded a guest appearance on the next album from FOO FIGHTERS, due out in 2011. The CD is being produced by Butch Vig, who helmed NIRVANA’s landmark 1991 album, “Nevermind”, which also marked Grohl’s recording debut with the alternative trio.
Grohl and Novoselic had not recorded together since NIRVANA cut its final song back in 1993, “You Know You’re Right”.
The new FOO FIGHTERS set will follow up 2007’s “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace”, which won a Grammy for album of the year. The band went on hiatus after touring behind the disc, as Grohl worked with THEM CROOKED VULTURES.
