The Foos frontman described how it felt to run through songs for the first time since Nirvana’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 2014.
He continued: “We would look at each other and smile, but the emotions would kind of go in waves, because there was someone missing – and you wish that you could still share those songs with Kurt.”
Novoselic said that he was “beaming” during the performance of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit.’
“I will cherish that moment for a long time because it was pretty special,” he said.
