David Lee Roth To Front Nirvana?

The guys over at Saturday Night Live really put together one helluva show this past weekend as musical guest Paul McCartney was joined on stage once again by the remaining members of Nirvana – just in case you missed their 12-12-12 Sandy Benefit performance last Wednesday.

Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear joined the former Beatle to once again play their new song, “Cut Me Some Slack.

The new track is the first off of Grohl’s upcoming “Sound City” documentary soundtrack.

Does this mean we might see a bit more of this new Nirvana line-up? If Novoselic has anything to say about it – a lot more.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, the Nirvana bassist was asked if he would be open to a reunion tour with McCartney heading the band. His reply: “Absolutely, I would.”

But that doesn’t mean the recently back at work Novoselic is married to the idea of McCartney. When asked if he would tour with Van Halen’s “Diamond” David Lee Roth as frontman, the answer was much the same.

"I love David Lee Roth,” said Novoselic. “I would tour with David Lee Roth because I think he's great. And it wouldn't be some oldies review: if we put a band together and we were making music and we felt good about it – and there was that passion and that spark – I'd do it in a second."

So there you have it, bassist Krist Novoselic ready and willing to tour. Anyways, just in case you missed the ready-to-work bassist along with McCartney and the rest of the Nirvana guys, you can check out their SNL performance right here
