Early Nirvana drummer Chad Channing has said he would be up for reuniting with the surviving members of his old band.

In an interview in this week's NME, which is on newsstands and available digitally now, the drummer says that he could envisage playing with Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic at some point in future. Channing contributed to Nirvana's debut album 'Bleach' and also laid down parts for the song 'Polly' on the band's second album 'Nevermind' before his departure from the band in 1990 when he was replaced by Grohl.

When asked if he would reunite with the surviving members of the band in future, he replied: "Yeah, if they wanted me to. It'd maybe be something like Dave playing guitar and singing and Krist doing bass. That'd be about the only arrangement I could think of that we cold pull off."

Channing was not inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame with Nirvana earlier this year, despite originally saying that he would be. When asked how he felt about the snub, he said: "I'm fine about it actually. I've always sort of felt that for me, everything's so much more about the music than the accolades."

Channing now fronts the band Before Cars. They have put out two releases – 2006's 'Old Chair EP' and 2009's 'Walk Back'. The band played their first ever UK shows in London last month.
