Nirvana's Surviving Members Recall Genius & Pain of Kurt Cobain

Originally posted 09/26/2011 02:30PM

When Kurt Cobain killed himself on April 5, 1994, he left behind two shell-shocked musicians who suddenly lost a close friend – but not their desire to make music.

"I remember the day after Kurt died, waking up and thinking, 'Wow, I get to wake up again. Okay. Make good with what you've got,' " Dave Grohl said Saturday in a radio interview with Jon Stewart to mark the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's seminal album Nevermind.

Asked if he thought he wouldn't be able to enjoy music again, Krist Novoselic said he had felt the opposite. "It was so much reality," Novoselic said, and he recalled thinking to himself: "No, I'm going to live."

Dave Grohl Eyes Actress to Play Him in Kurt Cobain Biopic

Originally posted 03/01/2010 10:30AM

The proposed Kurt Cobain biopic will undoubtedly proceed without his blessing, but Dave Grohl, former Nirvana band mate and Foo Fighters frontman, is taking a stand when it comes to who should portray him.

"I don't know about anyone else, but I'm crossing my fingers that Shelley Duvall plays me," the musician deadpans to PEOPLE. And though it may seem to be an odd choice for casting directors, Grohl explains why the actress made famous by being chased around by an ax-weilding Jack Nicholson is the right "man" for the job.

"Shelley Duvall in The Shining ..." he says, laughing. "That is MY face, you cannot get any closer than that."
