Nirvana Bassist At ‘A Loss For Words’ At What Happened Night Chris Cornell Died


Founding Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic posted a reaction to Chris Cornell’s final music video for “The Promise” last week.

He wrote on Facebook, “Powerful Chris Cornell song and video expressing the plight of refugees. God bless you Chris. I am still at a loss for words with what happened that night you died. Thanks again for another great song and your compassion.”

Novoselic was interviewed on The Bill Press Show yesterday where he discussed chairing FairVote, and the host mentioned that anything can happen now politically after the rise of President Donald Trump and how Bernie Sanders changed the Democratic party. Novoselic compared it to how grunge bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and Alice In Chains changed music.

“There could be a realignment, things change fast. I was in a band in the early 90’s, this little band out of Aberdeen, Washington, and we took to the road and there was MTV, FM radio, and we thought we’d never get on there.

Just a year later, everything just exploded, there was a whole new world. There was grunge music, alternative music. So I’ve seen it happen, change comes fast. Trump happened fast, all of a sudden what happened, we had Obama, now we have Trump, it’s a dichotomy, just the flip side.”
