It was three years ago in March that I started the website up for the upcoming anniversary releases and to let Nirvana fans world-wide enjoy 100% true daily facts about Nirvana. I was working with other Nirvana work before then and finally was contacted by management in 2011 who wanted me to work with them on the upcoming anniversary releases and been a part of it ever since. With my Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and now Instagram having over 50,000 followers and gaining 200+ daily - I have to thank you all for being very cool followers/fans! Rock on. - NirvanaNews.

Dave Grohl: "Paul was the one that said, ‘No, no, no, no – let’s write a song. Let’s write and record a new song in the three hours we have there,’ and we did it, and we just got Best Rock Song!"
Krist Novoselic: "I wanted to play accordion, and everyone was ‘Nooo.’"
Paul McCartney: "It was magic for me playing with these guys, I knew who Dave was because I’d met him, and he said ‘I have a couple of friends coming along.’ And during the session I hear them talking: ‘Wow, we haven’t played since Nirvana.’ So I found myself in the middle of a Nirvana reunion."
Dave Grohl: "There aren’t too many things that last forever and I honestly think what Paul and the band did will last forever, "It has the same effect on this generation of kids as it did on my generation. It’s really important that kids understand that everything comes from what’s come before and there’s this lineage that’s really important."
Paul McCartney: "They really are great to play with. They were a great band with Kurt. That’s what I experienced – just playing with a really good band, which is a very special thing. I should know."

Nirvana counts down the New Year in Oakland, CA, 1993. The show featured Bobcat Goldthwait, Chokebore and Butthole Surfers.
Kurt Cobain: "OK, bye. I guess we’ll count down the New Year now, ready?"
Krist Novoselic: "So we have to do the countdown."
Kurt: "Three minutes! I have to stall for three minutes? Two?"
Krist: [to a crowd member] “why did you flip me off?”
Kurt: "Let’s drop down to Times Square!"
Dave Grohl: "I can do a drum solo! OK here it goes, ready?"
Krist: "Let me tune up!!"
[Dave starts the drum solo]
Kurt: "Ten, nine, eight, seven, sex, five, four, three two, one! Ladies and Gentlemen Pauly Shore! Happy New Year!"
[Nirvana begins jamming off key]
Dave: "Hey, it’s just like a Grateful Dead show, alright! Have a Gerry Christmas and a Happy New Wear! I met Eddie Van Halen last night, he was drunk as shit! Hey Bobcat, come give me a hug, give me a hug!"
Krist: "Thanks a lot!"
Dave: "Happy New Year!"
