Update: Chad Channing will not be entering the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the other members of Nirvana. Read about why there was confusion in our latest story on the matter.
While many recognize Nirvana as Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, the band actually had other members along the way, and one of those members will join Nirvana when they're inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
Nirvana and Melvins are almost attached at the hip when it comes to rock history. As one of Kurt Cobain's biggest influences, Melvins frontman Buzz Osborne has always been able to offer fascinating insight on Cobain and Nirvana as a whole. In a new interview, Osborne shares an interesting take on Nirvana, comparing the band's songwriting to "a hair metal band's biggest hits."
On Sept. 13, 1993, Nirvana released what would become their final studio album, 'In Utero.' The influence of 'In Utero' and the rest of Nirvana's discography are still very present, and many celebrated rock and metal acts have teamed up to record 'In Utero: In Tribute' just in time for Record Store Day.
To celebrate the music and legacy of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, the musician's home town of Aberdeen, Wash., declared the frontman's birthday (Feb. 20) as 'Kurt Cobain Day.' To further immortalize the memory of Cobain, a statue of the musician playing guitar and crying has been installed in the Aberdeen Museum of History.
Author Charles R. Cross has a history delving into the man that was rock icon Kurt Cobain. Having previously penned the bestseller 'Heavier Than Heaven: The Biography of Kurt Cobain,' Cross is taking a more analytical look at the impression the Nirvana frontman made in his latest Cobain-themed book, 'Here We Are Now: The Last Impact of Kurt Cobain.'
Let’s face it, there is no love lost between Courtney Love and Foo Fighters frontman / Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. In the trailer for her new YouTube Channel, Love recently went as far as asking her public, “Is there anybody on the planet who would be watching this that doesn’t know that Dave Grohl and I don’t get along?” The two have had some very public spats throughout the years, stemming back to the rights held by Love and subsequent use of Nirvana music in the wake of Kurt Cobain’s passing.
The year 2014 is proving to be quite the eventful one for Nirvana considering it's been 20 years since the band was active. The group will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year and now comes word that the late Kurt Cobain will be celebrated annually in his hometown of Aberdeen, Wash.
As we draw closer to the 20th anniversary of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's tragic passing, it will certainly be a time of reflection on the music that left such a lasting impact on the world. As fans pour through the Internet watching footage of the band, we're always in search of more. Most recently, filmmaker Dave Markey discovered some personal footage he had of Nirvana's last show in Los Angeles, Calif. before Cobain's suicide, and posted it on Dec. 30 (watch above via CraveOnline).
Just imagine this beautiful scene. In early 1990, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain visited deranged punk rocker GG Allin in prison. The entire story has been captured in a new book about the Flaming Lips, and the meeting between Cobain and Allin is too hilarious not to read.
On the heels of the announcement that Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the seminal grunge will receive yet another honor. This coming year, the town of Hoquiam, Wash., will declare April 10 as Nirvana Day.
