This is from Krist Novoselic’s new interview with the Vaselines’ Eugene Kelly.

“Yeah, that’s the whole key, to have as much fun as possible doing music. I haven’t been doing a lot of music. Through the grace of Dave Grohl, I’ve been going down to L.A. and played with him a little bit, and I did some things on the last Foo Fighters record. I’ve actually been playing a lot of accordion. I’m obsessed with it. It’s really crazy. I don’t know what the hell happened to me. I just picked one up one day, and have had to play it every day, all the time. It’s an obsession. But I guess there’s a lot worse obsessions. You know what I mean?”

He also goes on to say:

“You know, nostalgia drives me crazy. It’s so pervasive. It’s everywhere. People look back at the good old days, and it’s, like, they weren’t that good.”

    Anyone who thought in 94 that Krist’s favorite instrument would one day be the accordion and he would study law?

    Krist looks more like a college professor than an aging rocker now. LOL! He makes some good points to think about here. It’s so easy to remember only the good parts of the good old days, and downplay the bad. It is what we make it.
