|NFC News Dave Grohl talks about re-uniting with Krist|
In a new interview, former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl talks about re-uniting with Krist Novoselic who appears on a track on the upcoming Foo Fighters album.
While recording the upcoming Foo Fighters album, a hard-rocking, back-to-basics record titled Wasting Light, Dave Grohl reunited with his former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic and Butch Vig, the producer of their incomparable Nevermind. Vig is once again working as Grohl's producer on the upcoming Foo effort, while Novoselic appears on a track called "I Should Have Known."
"The three of us haven't been in a studio together since 1991," Grohl revealed. And in spite of the years apart, the trio easily found their rhythm again as they recorded in Grohl's home studio. "Musically, it sounded great and it felt natural," Grohl added.
Read the full story here, courtesy of MTV. It also includes quotes from Butch Vig talking about the collaboration.

|NFC News Top 10 Albums of the Nineties: Nirvana #1|
In a new Rolling Stone poll, Top 10 Albums of the Nineties, as decided by the readers, Nirvana landed in the number one spot with Nevermind:
Last weekend we asked our readers to name their favorite album of the Nineties. The votes are tabulated and here are the top 10, with videos of standouts from each album.
Nobody should be surprised that Nirvana's Nevermind was the clear winner. Released in September of 1991, it famously knocked Michael Jackson's Dangerous off the top of the charts and sent shockwaves through the industry. Its effect has been slightly exaggerated over the years, but it did send label executives scurrying to sign soundalikes.
More info here where you can see the whole Top 10 as well, which includes bands such as Metallica, Guns N' Roses and Pearl Jam.
