In other Nirvana news, Dave Grohl discussed Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged rehearsals in a recent interview with American Way.
“Oh, yeah,” he starts, looking toward the ceiling, searching his head for details of a long-ago faded memory. Then he straightens up and nods. A smile purses his lips. “That show was supposed to be a disaster. We hadn’t rehearsed. We weren’t used to playing acoustic. We did a few rehearsals and they were terrible. Everyone thought it was horrible. Even the people from MTV thought it was horrible. Then we sat down and the cameras started rolling and something clicked. It became one of the band’s most memorable performances.”
The interviewer later mentioned that he had attended Nirvana’s Halloween 1993 show in Akron, Ohio.
“You were at that show? When Kurt was dressed as Barney the dinosaur and I was wrapped in gauze like a mummy? That gauze was so tight that the roadies had to try to cut it off me while I was still playing!”
When asked how he could remember a show from over 20 years ago, Grohl said he remembers all of his shows.
