Butch Vig Discusses Nirvana Reunion

(Gibson) Superstar producer (and sometime Garbage drummer) Butch Vig spoke with MTV News recently about his work on the new Foo Fighters album, which features a Nirvana reunion of sorts. Vig, who produced Nirvana's breakthrough album, Nevermind, teamed up with Dave Grohl and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic on the track "I Should Have Known." According to Vig, the track touched an emotional nerve.

"I'm not exactly sure what the song's about," Vig said. "But to me, it seems there's definitely some references about Kurt Cobain, and it's one of the most primal, raw things the Foo Fighters have ever done… it's quite an emotional roller-coaster ride when you hear it."

For all three participants, it was a rare moment to share: "When Krist came up to Dave's house, we sort of sat down and it was like, 'Holy [expletive], man!' We hadn't been in a room together – the three of us – in almost 20 years. We just sat around and shot the [expletive] for three or four hours. Dave and I were sipping on some wine, and Krist started drinking some bootleg whiskey, and it was great… One story would lead to another story, and it was an amazing experience, just to be there, to open up all these things you may have forgotten about. It was really a pretty special part of the album." more on this story
