Nirvana reform!

Talking to the Guardian Dave Grohl (sticksman with Nirvana, now of the Foo Fighters parish) said remaining members of Nirvana; Grohl, Krist Novoselic and part-timer Pat Smear jammed together before a recent California show, blasting through the old hits for the first time in almost 20 years.
