Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic Talks Foo Fighters’ Success and Missing Kurt Cobain

Earlier this week, we shared a new exclusive interview between Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic and SPIN founder Bob Guccione Jr. In that clip, the two discussed an assignment that Novoselic received from SPIN way back in 1993: to report on the civil war that was devastating Croatia at the time. (We also just republished the resulting article, dubbed “Masters of War,” as part of our ongoing “30 Years, 30 Stories” series.) And now we’ve got another segment from that same conversation; in the video below, Novoselic tries to speculate on what Nirvana might’ve sounded like today, discusses the enormous success of Dave Grohl’s Foo Fighters, and opens up about how heartbroken he was when his friend and bandmate, Kurt Cobain, committed suicide in April of 1994.

Check out the clip here, and catch Bob Guccione Jr. talking about SPIN‘s early days and 30th anniversary on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.
