For most bands, a 25th anniversary is a cause for celebration. For Krist Novoselic, it’s a time of reflection on what the world would like like if Kurt Cobain were still around.
25 years following the release of their legendary album Nevermind, Krist Novoselic spoke to Rolling Stone about his thoughts.
“I wish Kurt was still around, a whole new generation of listeners are discovering Nirvana and is connecting with Nirvana. It’s always good that we remember Kurt. He lives on.”
“You know Kurt was a cynical bastard, he could be a vicious critic. You know, I love him, but boy, I don’t know what he’d think of a lot of music today. He wouldn’t hold his punches. Kurt just had so much passion, the way he’d sing and feel about the music. We all had this intensity.”
