Melvins frontman Buzz Osbourne revealed that Dave Grohl no showed a rehearsal and recording session for the Melvins’ new album Basses Loaded with his former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic, according to a new Rolling Stone interview.
“So Krist Novoselic came down and we started rehearsing, and Dave was supposed to show up — and he just never showed up. Blew it off, totally. And it was his idea! I didn’t appreciate that, you know? I’m a lot of things, but one thing I’m not doing is sitting next to the phone in curlers, waiting for Dave Grohl to call me, you know? When he totally blows you off like that, it’s f**ked. But whatever. There’s nothing I can do about that. So we did some recording with Krist while he was here.”
“I don’t do that to people, you know? Generally when I come up with an idea for something and it’s my idea, and people fly down there on their own dime, which is what Krist did, and then you leave him hanging. That’s not something I’m known for. But Dave, he’s busy playing songs at the Oscars and s**t.”
