Foo Fighter’s Dave Grohl has revealed that the remaining members of Nirvana still record music in the studio together.

Since frontman Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994, the remaining members have only performed a handful of times together, including their induction to the Rock Hall of Fame in 2014.

Earlier this year, fans paid tribute to Kurt Cobain on the 27th anniversary since his death. More on that here.

Grohl had previously called Cobain “the greatest songwriter of our generation”. 

Recently somebody purchased strands of Cobains hair for $14,000 at an auction.

Grohl & the rest of Nirvana still “Kind of jam” together

But now, Grohl said that the remaining members Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear still get together to record music.

“Krist Novoselic is a pilot, he flies his own plane. He lives up in the Pacific Northwest and whenever he comes down to Los Angeles, you know, we always love to see each other and we’ll have dinner”, the former Nirvana drummer explained.

“Last time he was here I made dinner for us and we hung out. and Pat‘s always around and the three of us, you know we like to just, we like to be together. We like to see each other and if there are instruments around or a studio that’s available, we’ll just get together and kind of jam, you know?”. 

“And we don’t like run through a big old Nirvana setlist but we do like to fool around and sometimes as we’re fooling around, songs happen”, he also added.

“And you know if we’re in a studio we’ll record them. So we’ve recorded some stuff that’s really cool. But we’ve never done anything with it. But to us, I think, to us, it’s, it’s more just like friends, jamming around, it doesn’t really seem like any sort of like big official reunion or anything”. 

“Instrumentals”

Grohl also revealed that he does not do any vocals when he is recording with the others. He said that the recording sessions are left as instrumentals.

“We kind of record these instrumntals and, and just mess around. It’s very casual”, he said.

“There’s no pressure on us to do something that the world will have to hear it’s more really just for fun, and a lot of it’s really cool, you know? It reminds you that, that when the three of us get together in a room and start playing, It sounds like it did. It sounds like it used to. When we put the three of us in a room and it makes that noise, it still does”.
