Krist Novoselic talks with ‘Triple M’ around the 20th Anniversary release of “Nevermind” last year.
“Kurt was not lazy, even though his apartment was a mess, a complete utter mess. You could never get him to wash the dishes or take out the garbage, you know. But he’d always be doing something, he wasn’t lazy, that’s for sure.”- Krist Novoselic.
March, 1991 - The “Boombox Rehearsals” are recorded in Tacoma, WA.
“It was a really raw boombox cassette recording. It distorted so badly that you could barely make out what they’re playing.” - Butch Vig.

February, 1993 - “Incesticide” goes gold.
Interviewer: What do you do when you’re not playing music?
’Kurdt Kobain‘(as spelled in the album’s liner notes): Well, I’m reading Perfume for the second time. It’s about a perfume apprentice in the 1700s. And I really like Camille Paglia a lot; it’s really entertaining, even though I don’t necessarily agree with what she says. I still paint once in a while-I painted the cover of Incesticide.
“Incesticide” will turn 20 later this December.

Dave Grohl interview with Rolling Stone!
The Foo Fighters were thousands of miles from home on tour when they heard that their super-heavy seventh LP, Wasting Light, got nominated for six Grammys. “That has to be the highlight of the year for us,” Dave says while checking in from Australia between shows. “Believe me, we were blown away when we found out.” Once Grohl returns back to the states, he’ll begin working on the documentary he’s directing about the legendary L.A. studio Sound City. “It’s exciting, the vision is incredibly clear - you’ll see. Expect some epic jam sessions.”
Interviewer: What do you think of all the Nineties nostalgia lately?
Dave: I don’t really see anything that I consider Nineties nostalgia. Loud-ass guitars and drummers who trash their kits - when did that ever go away? I love that a band like Soundgarden can still fucking slay, but I wouldn’t consider it nostalgic. It’s not like guitars and drums and people who make honest records died off and are being resurrected in some Jurassic Park laboratory. That shit still exists. It’s just suffocating under a pile of trash.
Dave also talks about Deadmau5, “20th Anniversary” of Nevermind, & the new documentary!
