Could the remaining members of Nirvana be performing their songs at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies next week in Brooklyn, New York?
It sure seems that way, as bassist Krist Novoselic tweeted, "Been playing those @HalLeonardBooks bass tabs to get up to speed. Muscle memory is good too. #PracticeMakesPerfect @nirvana." A fan asked Novoselic is it was some kind of April Fools' joke and he replied, "It's no joke. I am dusting off those riffs."
It would be the first time Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl have played any Nirvana material since Kurt Cobain's death 20 years ago. The pair and Nirvana touring guitarist Pat Smear have played together three times with Paul McCartney, doing the song "Cut Me Some Slack" from the Sound City soundtrack. It seems unlikely McCartney would sing a Nirvana song, so the most probable candidate is the man inducting the band -- ex-R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe.
