When asked if he would ever cover a Nirvana track live, he said: "Every once in a while we talk about it. For the Sound City gig here in London we were thinking about musicians that we could invite because Stevie Nicks and John Fogerty couldn't make it. Someone came up with the idea of doing a Nirvana song with PJ Harvey. Kurt loved her and we love her and we thought, 'Yeah, what would we do?' I said: 'God, what if we were to do 'Milk It' from 'In Utero' with Polly singing?' We all looked at each other like, 'Woah, that would be amazing…' and then she couldn't do it!"
Thankfully, he admits that a Nirvana reunion can't be taken lightly: "The thing is, it's sacred ground. If we were ever to do something like that it would have to be right because you want to pay tribute. There's a reason Foo Fighters don't do Nirvana songs, and it's a good reason."
Fuck yeah it's for good reason. PJ Harvey would be amazing, for sure, but it'd also be unsettling. I'm not sure I want to see any Nirvana renion. Ever.
Would you be okay with a Nirvana reunion? If so, who would be an acceptable frontperson? PJ Harvey? Stevie Nicks? Paul McCartney? WHO?
