Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic has teased that the surviving members of the band could perform when they are inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame later this month.

In a message on Twitter, the bassist wrote that he was practicing bass parts and mentioned Nirvana.


REM frontman Michael Stipe will induct Nirvana into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on April 10.

The ceremony will also see Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello induct Kiss and Bruce Springsteen induct the E Street Band, while Coldplay's Chris Martin will pay tribute to Peter Gabriel. Meanwhile, Glenn Frey of the Eagles will induct his former bandleader Linda Ronstadt. Stevie Nicks, Carrie Underwood, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow and Bonnie Raitt will perform a tribute to the singer.

Questlove Of The Roots will pay tribute to Hall And Oates, and Peter Asher is will induct Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham.

This year's event marks the first time the general public has been able to attend the ceremony in New York City. Previously, the closed ceremony took place in New York's Waldorf Astoria's grand ballroom.

Artists are eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record, meaning Nirvana, who released debut album 'Bleach' in 1989, have been nominated at the first possible opportunity. Last month, original Nirvana drummer Chad Channing said that he would not be inducted with his bandmates.
