Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic Reveals Why He & Dave Grohl Reconciled With Courtney Love


Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic discussed what led to he and Dave Grohl reconciling with Courtney Love on his Facebook page.

“Now now Jay, be nice on this one. In 2014 we went to HOF and it was 20 years after Kurt died. Did you see Dave and I up there with Kurt’s mom and sisters and Courtney? That would have never happened without the HOF. God bless them!”

Novoselic also discussed Kurt Cobain in a recent Rolling Stone Periscope video, “I’ll tell a Kurt Cobain story. We were having this conversation, there was some kind of issue with the band, some person, one of those business type deals, and I told Kurt, ‘Yeah, but he seems like a nice guy.’ Then Kurt looked at me and said, ‘Nice guys grow on trees.’”

Novoselic discussed Nirvana changing rock on WNYC.

“In 1990 I was living in Tacoma, Washington, and we were in this little band, and then a year later we were the number one band in the world. That shows you how change comes.”

“The old regime was gone, and there was a new regime of music, which they somehow termed as ‘alternative’ music. No, this is the new rock, it’s not an alternative. It’s Grunge, it’s rock and roll music, it’s the new rock. Then things changed, it seemed like there was this new sensibility consciousness in music. I think those punk rock ethics, I think we brought that with us, and other bands brought it into the mainstream.”
