Dave Grohl recently commented on Nirvana’s reunion in 2014, as featured in this article here:

“I think more than angst and gloom and doom there was catharsis,” says Grohl, “and that’s what made the band, the engine that drove the entire thing.”

“I hadn’t heard that sound since Kurt died,” said Grohl regarding his initial reunion rehearsals with surviving Nirvana bandmates Pat Smear and Krist Novoselic. “When we played together, it sounded like Nirvana.”

“I was just the drummer, I could walk in the front door of a Nirvana show and people wouldn’t really recognize me. So I kind of got to experience it all from the outside.

“I’ve seen a lot of my friends have a really hard time with fame. But when the world around you changes it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to change with it. I didn’t go and buy a Lamborghini because I had a million dollars. I was excited that so many people liked the music. To walk into a bar and see some kid air drumming to a song I recorded on, I love that. That’s the way I took it in. It doesn’t make me any better than the kid. It’s just kinda cool.”

    I loved that vinyl so much. At least we had a good time with YKYR. Isn’t it?
