She said:

“Getting a call was one of those things where you had both emotions – it was, like, ‘Oh my God! I’m scared shitless. The reason I’m scared shitless is ’cause I know I have to say yes. I have to do this.’

“I mean, how, as a rock and roll fan, could you say no? As a Nirvana fan? So, that was not a possibility – saying no.

“Being asked was such an honor. I didn’t wanna read into it too much and think about it too much, so I just practiced and got it together. And luckily, we had some chances to go through the song before we had to actually play it that night.

“But, strangely, I was very calm, which is not normal. I should have a certain level of anxiety, and I’m glad I wasn’t petrified, ’cause that makes it tough too. But I was strangely calm, which then gave me a sense it was all right, just karmically, that I was doing this. And I was calm.”
