Deer Tick Frontman Explains How Nirvana Jam Came To Be

(Classic Rock) Deer Tick frontman John McCauley's dream came true on Thursday night when he got to perform with his heroes Nirvana - and later told how he believed it was an April Fool prank.

Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear played a set at their Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction, fronted by guests including Joan Jett, Kim Gordon and St Vincent's Annie Clark.

They followed it with a secret show at a 230-capacity club in Brooklyn, with McCauley invited to take a turn alongside the big-name guests to deliver Nirvana tracks Serve The Servants and Scentless Apprentice.

"I got an email from Dave personally - but it was the day before April Fool's Day so I didn't really get my hopes up," He tells Rolling Stone. "It could have been anybody with a fake email account. I was skeptical for a couple of days, but then I got an email from their manager and it got real legit."

"Then I was like, 'Holy sh*t - this is weird, man. But let's do it.'" more on this story
