Nirvana bassist interviews Bleach players in wake of reissue

Posted November 2nd, 2009 by eric

To celebrate Sub Pop’s 20th anniversary re-issue of Nirvana’s Bleach, bassist Krist Novaselic has interviewed two key players in that album’s creation, drummers Dale Crover and Chad Channing. Crover is, perhaps, better known as the drummer for the Melvins, one of the bands that inspired Kurt Cobain to start Nirvana. Chad Channing’s tenure ended with Nirvana shortly after a 1990 demo session with Nevermind producer Butch Vig, wherein his drumming frustrated both Cobain and Novaselic to the point of seeking a replacement in Dave Grohl. The interviews are both upbeat and fondly recalled. No bitterness from Channing despite his slightly insulting departure. The Bleach reissue hits stores tomorrow in CD and double LP formats.
