Former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic has revealed the vaults of unreleased Nirvana songs have run dry, but audio recordings weren’t the only posthumous media the band could release. “”What there is, is video,” Novoselic told Daily World. “There’s a lot of video. There’s not going to be any new Nirvana records.”
In an 89-page oral history posted on the Washington Secretary of State website, Novoselic revealed a lot of details about the early days of Nirvana, including an interesting bit about Kurt Cobain calling him the night that Cobain first tried heroin. “Don’t do it man,” Novoselic told Cobain. “You’re playing with dynamite.” Novoselic added that he has never used heroin, saying, “I’ve never seen heroin, but I’ve seen people on it. And people fool themselves with all kinds of things – gambling, sex, denial, all kinds of things to get hung up on. There’s a whole romance about heroin.”
