Grohl Says Nirvana Would Still be Making Music

Dave Grohl is discussing Nirvana as the 27th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death approaches.

In a new interview, the Nirvana drummer said, “Ultimately one of the greatest heartbreaks of my life that Nirvana isn’t still here today making music. Whether it would be called Nirvana or something else. It is one of my life’s greatest heartbreaks that
Kurt isn’t still here to write more amazing songs because it’s pretty clear that he was blessed with a gift.”

Grohl went on to say, “I’m very proud to say that I got to be his drummer and play those songs every night.”

Do you think Nirvana would have been able to stay relevant this long?
