    NFC News Dave Grohl & Pat Smear re-unite at EMAs too!
    At the MTV Europe Music Awards this past Thursday, the Foo Fighters performed a stunning version of their new single, The Pretender with ex-Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear. They also jammed on a cover of the Sex Pistols classic God Save The Queen.

    Dave Grohl actually "co-hosted" a large portion of the show, joined by several of the music stars of the show at the MTV VIP bar. At one point, while talking with Michael Stipe of R.E.M., Grohl even recalled a story from his days with Nirvana about a gig in R.E.M.'s home turf of Atlanta, GA.

    NFC News Krist Novoselic comments on upcoming Unplugged DVD
    From NME: "Speaking to NME.COM, Nirvana's bass player Krist Novoselic said he was looking forward to the release, particularly in its new audio format.

    'The new 5.1 sound really opens it up and it gave me a new appreciation for the songs,' he explained. 'You can hear what each instrument is doing. It really invites you in and I'm sure everyone will enjoy it in a new way. I'd really like to re-release In Utero in that way at some point.'

    A rehearsal version of 'Pennyroyal Tea' which features guitarist Pat Smear also playing in the track is included. This was originally the way the band planned to perform the song until Kurt Cobain decided at the last minute to play it solo during the show."
