Nirvana members play together again at festival with Joan Jett on vocals

It happened once again, the remaining members of Nirvana, Dave Grohl, Pat Smear and Krist Novoselic, met at Cal Jam, a festival organized by the Foo Fighters.


They played classics like “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, “In Bloom”, “All Apologies” and more, having the participation of  Joan Jett, Brody Dalle (The Distillers) and John McCauley (Deer Tick).

The performance came after the Foo Fighters show at the event and repeated another one that took place in New York in 2014 after the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame ceremony that included Nirvana in their select group of artists.

Forensic analysis at the time determined he had died by suicide on April 5. The Seattle Police Department incident report states: “Kurt Cobain was found with a shotgun across his body, had a visible head wound and there was a suicide note discovered nearby.” The King County Medical Examiner noted puncture wounds on the inside of both the right and left elbow.
