Jon Stewart to Host Nirvana-themed Q&A with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Butch Vig
Published Aug 25, 2011As you may have noticed, Nirvana nostalgia is kicking into overdrive, with the group's breakthrough album, Nevermind, celebrating its 20th anniversary next month. Already we've learned about that massive anniversary box set, as well as bassist Krist Novoselic's upcoming performance of some tracks off the album in Seattle. Adding to the mania, the surviving Nirvana members will be taking part in a Q&A session with celebrated political satirist Jon Stewart.
The New York Times reports that the Daily Show host will meet up with Novoselic, drummer Dave Grohl and Nevermind producer Butch Vig for "Townhall With Nirvana," a two-hour radio program to air on Sirius XM on September 24. Appropriately, the show will air at 8 p.m. EST on the satellite radio broadcaster's "Lithium" station. No doubt the troupe will discuss the landmark disc and the massive mark it left on the rock world.
In addition to the interview, the station will also be rebranding itself "Nevermind Radio" from September 23 to September 28, with a strong focus on showcasing the group's hits, B-sides and rarities.
In other "Lithium" news, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, oddly, recently covered the tune at a gig in Seattle. You can see the Inception star sing it below.
