Deer Tick's John McCauley also assumes the Kurt Cobain role during six-song Cal Jam set
The surviving members of Nirvana – Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear – were reunited at Foo Fighters’ Cal Jam festival in San Bernardino, California, this weekend (October 6).
As part of Foo Fighters’ encore, the trio were joined by Joan Jett and Deer Tick’s John McCauley to run through six Nirvana songs. Jett fronted the ensemble on “Breed”, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “All Apologies” while McCauley sang “Serve The Servants”, “Scentless Apprentice” and “In Bloom”.
The Distillers’ Brody Dalle played bass on “All Apologies” while Novoselic switched to accordion.
