In a new Rolling Stone interview, Dave Grohl revealed that Nirvana do plan to release their 2014 reunion performance at Saint Vitus in New York.
“I don’t know. When we realized that we were going to do it, I just called the people from my production company and said, “We need to film this,” and we loaded some cameras in there and and shot it without knowing what would ever come of it. But it would be a shame for that evening to be only a memory and and we’ve got it. And it was fucking great. It was cathartic and everybody involved, I think, understood that they were part of something like a dream.
I remember playing and looking and seeing Carrie Brownstein in the front row in the pit singing along to every song and, you know, getting to play drums behind Joan Jett or, god, playing ‘School’ or fucking ‘Pennyroyal Tea’ with J Mascis. It really was amazing. It was something else. Someday, I’m sure everybody’ll see it.”
He also discussed the power of “Everlong” by Foo Fighters.
“Oh, yeah. There are nights where you’re thinking about what toppings are on the pizza on the bus and whether you need to do laundry tomorrow, but when you launch into a song like that, it immediately brings you back. We’re not robots. What chokes me up is when I see people singing lyrics back to me with the same emotion. So if you hear me kind of giggling in the middle of a song, it’s because I’m trying not to just fucking totally break down in front of everybody like a fool [laughs].”
