(New Musical Express)   Chad Channing, the original drummer for Nirvana, says he would be "up for a reunion." Apparently, he hasn't read an issue of Rolling Stone the last twenty years   ( nme.com) divider line

Yeah, it doesn't stand a ghost of a chance.

Wouldn't a reunion consist of only the surviving members you were actually with while a part of the band? You can't play with Grohl, then.

Has anyone read Rolling Stone in the last 20 years?

gfid: Has anyone read Rolling Stone in the last 20 years?


Only when they report on a currents events in a controversial manner and people get all outraged and wonder why a "music" magazine even has the right to cover current events while somehow forgetting Rolling Stone has always devoted a lot of coverage to politics and current events.

/I don't read Rolling Stone regularly, so I'm not white-knighting it; just sayin

For some reason I got into a Nirvana streak recently and read both the main books about Kurt, Come As You Are, and Heavier than Heaven. I like CAYA more, but both are great.

Well, he's probably right about him on drums and Grohl singing and on guitar is the only way that'd work.

/it wouldn't work.

FTFA When asked if he would reunite with the surviving members of the band in future, he replied: "Yeah, if they wanted me to. It'd maybe be something like Dave playing guitar and singing and Krist doing bass. That'd be about the only arrangement I could think of that we cold pull off."


You know, I'd get the CD of this, but I have a feeling that Cortney would never let this happen.

Speaking of Nirvana, I would really like to see Neil Young jam with Dave, Krist, and Pat

Screw that. He's clearly never seen Night of the Living Dead.

Right around the time Pat joined is when I got kind of bored with Nirvana. Tool was great in the early- mid 90's. /42

Rolling Stones list of bands that should get back together:
1. The ones the editors like
2. The ones the writer likes
3. The ones whose members are all still ailve
4. The ones with some dead members
5. The ones with all dead members

Rolling Stones gets mocked when it tries to report on "current events" because its coverage is about as hard-hitting as a baby and with less coherent thought.

He didn't bring it up. A reporter asked him if he would consider it. He said "yeah," then spitballed an answer about maybe Dave playing guitar or something. I doubt he's given it much thought beyond answering a question he just got asked.

But the minute he answered in the affirmative, NME knew they had their headline. He probably thought he was just being interviewed about the anniversary, and now suddenly he looks like a conniving opportunist.

This kind of wackness happens all the time.

I'm sure Hiro Yamamoto is up for doing bass. They could be Sound-vana.

Next up, Ringo Starr says he'd like to reunite with the Beatles, and the original Lynard Skynard plans on getting back together.

She's been in a some movies, released a couple of albums, blown a bunch of money, and is going to be in the upcoming season of Sons of Anarchy.

The problem is the center of Nirvana's sound was Kurt's singing and guitar, and Grohl beating the shiat out of his drums. If you have no Kurt singing and playing, and you take Grohl off of drums to play guitar and sing, then the only thing that's left that produces that original sound is Novoselic on bass. Well, Grohl has already had Novoselic join him on bass on at least one Foo Fighters track, so there it is.

It's like trying to do a Beatles reunion with Ringo and McCartney. (Not that I'm comparing Grohl, who's a much more talented all-around musician, to Ringo.)

Eh, he got blindsided by a reporter. He gave a perfectly reasonable answer:

"Yeah, if they wanted me to. It'd maybe be something like Dave playing guitar and singing and Krist doing bass. That'd be about the only arrangement I could think of that we could pull off."

That's not a quote that deserves the Dumbass tag. It's not like they'd be doing new record of all Nirvana cover tunes.

I recently listened to the Bleach reissue/remastered record, haven't listened to anything from Bleach in about 15 years or more. That's some really good stuff.

One thing about that record, producer Jack Endino has an deadly accurate ear for tuning guitars. That's gonna sound funny for such a punk/alt rock band, but take another listen. That stuff is seriously tightly tuned, and makes a huge difference. Really fun to listen to.

They should also call  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Everman who played with Chad Channing in a band before Nirvana, then played 2nd guitar for Nirvana for a bit, then left Nirvana and replaced Hiro Yamamoto on bass in Soundgarden, then he joined the US Army Rangers and went on to become a member of a Special Forces unit. When he retired from the military and went back to school for a degree, General Stanley McChrystal wrote him a letter of recommendation!

Bleach was great. Incesticide was always my favorite back then, but that seems to be the one everyone else hated for some reason. I always felt it was the purest form of that band when compared to them live and everything. Oh well.

Incesticide was my favorite as well... but, now that I'm old... i get nostalgic while listening to Unplugged... damn, Kurt had an amazing sound... 8/

I read Heavier than Heaven years ago. I thought it was really interesting, especially the whole thing about how when Nirvana was first coming up, Kurt Cobain really wanted to try and make them a huge band. It is something that almost never gets talked about with respect to him, but it makes the whole thing about him hating his fame make a lot more sense. I mean if he just hated it that would be one thing, but if he actually had internal conflict that is a hell of a lot more interesting.

Agreed.

Also the original About A Girl - always preferred that to the acoustic.

Other than that, Bleach doesn't have much that I have an appreciation for these days. Most Nirvana is now firmly in 'take it or leave it' territory for me.

I like probably about 90% of anything Nirvana released. Bleach was my favorite album. Not sure if I would still say that, but "School" is possibly my favorite Nirvana song of all time. It is definitely the only song I have on heavy rotation in recent years.

Yeah, I think it was a case of the typical "I wanna be rich and famous" fantasy looking so cool and easy, and him finding out that there's a lot of it that's just a pain in the ass, and going from "pretty well-known in the regional rock world" to world-famous so quickly is different from a more gradual climb.

If I remember correctly he's actually involved in politics lately, including some stuff he does for a PAC.

Honestly, I think Dave Grohl's great and all,

but I like Bleach the best. It was feral.
