Butch Vig has said a second instalment of Foo Fighters‘ ‘Sonic Highways’ documentary series and album hasn’t come “to fruition yet”.

In the interview, Vig also spoke about making ‘Nevermind’ with Nirvana and what Grohl brought to the band. “Dave was a breath of fresh air because he had this goofy sense of humor. He was so young,” he said.”

“He brought this great energy, sang a lot of the background vocals, and had this great voice. There really was no tension at all between Dave and Kurt [Cobain]. All we had to do was capture when Kurt was focused and there 100 percent.”

Vig also addressed long-running rumours that Cobain had written Hole‘s ‘Live Through This’ album. “I don’t know,” he said when asked about it. “I think Kurt might have helped [Courtney Love] with some of the music, but those are totally her words. And hey, if your husband is a great songwriter, why not get a little help?”
