Dave Grohl of Nirvana cemented his rock legacy with his place in the group — where he was a drummer — but since has been involved in several projects, Foo Fighters and Queens Of The Stone Age among them.
In fact, Dave Grohl is barely known for Nirvana among young fans, with his Queens Of The Stone Age and Foo Fighters legacy more a notable point on the former drummer’s resume for whippersnappers.
Grohl teamed up last night with Paul McCartney (in a Nirvana reunion dubbed by some as “Sirvana”), as well as former bandmates Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear to jam in the star-studded Sandy benefit concert — which seemed to delight grunge-era fans and frustrate them in equal measures.
Yes, Dave Grohl is one of the busiest men in rock and roll, and if he’s not performing with the Beatle, recording with Foo Fighters, or jamming with Them Crooked Vultures, he’s working on Queens Of The Stone Age stuff. But, he admits, he won’t be touring with the latter any time soon, and admitted a bit of favor for his Them Crooked Vultures ventures.
Grohl spoke of bandmate after Nirvana John Paul Jones, and told a radio DJ that he was really looking forward to doing some new Them Crooked Vultures “stuff” as soon as he can work the project into his busy lineup. Grohl said:
“It was one of the highlights of my life when John Paul Jones said, ‘Now I’ve been in two great bands.’ That was a huge deal for me … We’ve talked about it, I know that someday we’ll get back together and do stuff, because we love playing with each other.”
You can watch Dave Grohl’s mini Nirvana reunion below, but without Kurt Cobain, it’s just not even remotely the same — would you agree?
