Krist Novoselic Reflects on Nirvana

Krist Novoselic Reflects on Nirvana

The surviving members of Nirvana have spent the last month reflecting on the band that made them famous.  In Utero, the band's final studio album, was re-released in September.  Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl have given several interviews in which they reflect on Nirvana.

Novoselic talks about about Kurt Cobain in an interview with Rolling Stone.  Earlier, Grohl did the same thing.

Rolling Stone writer David Fricke asks Krist, "Would it be fair to say Nirvana was Kurt's band?"

Krist replied, "That's totally fair, totally correct."

Novoselic also shared thoughts on Cobain's lyrics and process and what it all meant:

"I never interpreted any of his songs. Kurt never did. He was cagey about his lyrics. You could read into them anything you want. I get these stories from people: 'Man, when I was in recovery, I was listening to Nirvana every day, and it helped me get through.' That's great. I'm not going to tell you what the music means...Kurt said that he never liked literal things. He liked cryptic things. He would cut out pictures of meat from grocery-store fliers, then paste these orchids on them. What does it mean? What is he trying to say?"

Since the end of Nirvana, Novoselic has focused a lot of his time on state politics in Washington.  He still plays bass and accordion.  Krist has contributed a few times to Grohl's Foo Fighters and has recently reunited with the surviving members of Nirvana with Paul McCartney.
