At last week's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, four female singers fronted Nirvana: Joan Jett; Kim Gordon, St. Vincent; and Lorde.
Novoselic said that Jett was the first woman he had in mind. He discussed the idea with drummer Dave Grohl and they ran with the idea of having women stand in for the late Kurt Cobain. Both men believed it was a good tribute to Cobain and what the band stood for.
Krist had this to say about each of the singers:
"It was a good balance of females as Joan Jett and Kim Gordon are matriarchs of Punk Rock, while St. Vincent and Lorde represent the powerful up-and-coming women in Rock. Every one of these performances nailed a Nirvana tune in their own way. Joan - Smells Like Teem Spirit, Kim - Aneurism, St. Vincent - Lithium and Lorde - All Apologies. I had fun on the last song because I got to play accordion and all of our guests were on stage for a gala closing! Our set will be broadcast in high quality television in May so check it out."
The bassist spends much of his time now working for various political causes. He ended the entry with a video about women's suffrage and representation.
