Dave Grohl Wanted PJ Harvey For Nirvana Jam

(Gibson) In a recent interview with NME, Dave Grohl revealed just how close he was to playing a Nirvana song live on stage again. Says Grohl to the magazine:

"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!"

Grohl does realize that he simply couldn't be doing straight up Nirvana covers with Foo Fighters: "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." more on this story
