J Mascis Was Asked To Join Nirvana Twice
In a new interview, Mascis confirms long-believed rumors that Kurt Cobain asked him to be the band's second guitarist after a show at Maxwell's in Hoboken, N.J, in the summer of 1989.
"Nirvana was playing Maxwell's and after the show I was talking to Kurt and [Sonic Youth's] Thurston Moore," Mascis told Spin. "Kurt said, 'You should join my band.' I think he was sick of the guy Jason [Everman] who was in the band at the time, and thought I should play guitar. I didn't think much about it. "
