At first I didn’t think much of it. Then I went back and thought that could this be a clue to something? (Yeah I’m a real genius).
Soon others had put the pieces together for me. That’s Pat’s guitar on the left, Krist’s bass on the right & Dave’s drums behind. So whose guitar is that? It turns out it’s Joan Jett’s (Details ==> http://bit.ly/1ekyh7J)
I had mulled over who would front the band for a while. I actually told Taz a couple of months ago when they got into the R&R HOF that they would play Nirvana songs for the 1st time that night. I also thought that it would be Dave up front & Chad Channing on the drums (He was the drummer on “Bleach” the album that is now 25 years old so they can be in the HOF). So it would make sense. Yup, 1 for 2.
I’ve been asked today what I think of Joan Jett fronting the band? Honestly. I think it’s a perfect fit. I think that Kurt would like that it’s a woman and especially one that Kurt liked! (at least for some reason my memory is telling me he did. Why wouldn’t he really?). She’s a punk rocker, a strong woman and will hold her own very well up there with the fellas. I think they made an awesome choice.
Tonight all of this will probably be made official on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. Dave & Krist are appearing on the program. So I think it’s safe to say that they are there to discuss this.
I look forward to hearing their versions of Nirvana songs and how it will work. Now the question is…….what the hell do they play?
