Post Malone Played Nirvana Classics With Travis Barker – Krist Novoselic Is a Fan
"@postmalone is nailing it!!!" Nirvana bassist tweeted
As promised the other day, Post Malone played a bunch of Nirvana songs in a livestream on YouTube broadcasted on Friday.
Joined by Travis Barker on drums, Nick Mack on guitar and Brian Lee on bass, each located in different rooms of his house in Utah, the dress-wearing Malone (paying tribute to Kurt Cobain) tore through songs like set opener “Francis Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle,” “Come As You Are” and “School.” The set lasted around 75 minutes.
The performance raised funds for The United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for The World Health Organization (WHO) in support of COVID-19 relief efforts.
On Wednesday, Courtney Love gave her blessing to the event.
