Nirvana posted the above photo on their Facebook page a few hours ago. The photo is of Pat Smear’s Fender Strat, Joan Jett’s Gibson Melody Maker guitar, Krist Novoselic’s Gibson RD bass, Dave Grohl’s DW drums. Nirvana will be on The Tonight Show tomorrow and will perform at their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Thursday.
Below are photos of Novoselic, Smear, and Grohl playing the same instruments during their time in Nirvana (some may not be identical but they are very similar), along with Joan Jett playing her guitar. Also below the photos, watch Foo Fighters and Joan Jett perform “Bad Reputation” in 2011 on David Letterman.
