Krist Anthony Novoselic
Born May 10, 1965 in Compton, CA to Krist and Maria
Has a younger sister, Diana, born in 1973, and a younger brother, Robert.
Married long-time girlfriend, Shelli, on December 30, 1989 in Tacoma, WA. (They later divorced in 1999.)
Worth noting: Krist is 6'7"---over a foot taller than Kurt was
It was Krist who was the Shocking Blue fan. Kurt would've preferred their first single to be something that he wrote himself, not a cover song like Love Buzz, which Nirvana recorded because of Krist's love of the band.
Krist married his long-time girlfriend, Shelli, on December 30, 1989. (They later divorced on 1999.) When Kurt and Courtney were married, Krist and Shelli always ignored Courtney. She had too much control over Kurt, and they wanted nothing to do with her. Even today, Krist and Dave Grohl continue to have legal battles with Courtney over the rights to Nirvana's music. (Krist did buy the rights to Nirvana.com in 1999, but has no plans for it as of yet.)
Since Nirvana's untimely demise, Krist has become politically active, and he even formed a band called Sweet 75.
He still finds it hard to this day to speak of Kurt Cobain, but he has been more vocal about it than he was right after it happened.
As of late, he has formed a commitee to battle censorship
In recent months, has also joined the punk band Flipper.
*Krist only went to church to meet girls*
David Eric Grohl
Instruments: Drums and background vocals
Born in Warren, OH on January 14, 1969 to James and Virginia
As of August 2003: married to Jordyn Blum
Grew up in Springfield, VA with his mother & younger sister, Lisa
Nirvana had one drummer after another since forming in 1987. After Chad Channing left the band after releasing Bleach, Nirvana began to look for yet another drummer.
Buzz Osbourne of the Melvins recommended a drummer from Washington, DC by the name of Dave Grohl. This would be the last time they would have to look.
Dave Grohl had just recently left a band called Scream, and he boarded the plane to Seattle with only his drum kit and a bag of clothes. (He had also played in the band Freaky Baby before moving to Scream.)
Both Dave & Franz Stahl of the Foo Fighters got their start in Scream!
The trio of Nirvana that everyone now knows of was completed when Dave joined the band in 1990.
Kurt and Krist got along with Dave a lot better than they had with the previous drummers. (In one photo of Nirvana taken when Chad Channing was still in the band, Kurt had drawn a plus sign over himself and Krist, and a minus sign over Chad.)
During his tenure with the band, Dave played drums, sang back-up to Kurt, and lead sang on one song called Marigold, which is on the Heart-Shaped Box single.
Before getting married, Dave went through several relationships, notablely that of photographer Jennifer Youngblood, whom he divorced in 1997.
He still remains active in the music scene with his highly successful band, the Foo Fighters. Unlike his Nirvana days, he no longer plays drums, but instead plays lead guitar, sings the lead vocals, and writes most of their songs.
He did reprise his role as a drummer when he appeared on Mad Tv with Jack Black's band, Tencious D, among others.
Dave was asked by Tom Petty in 1994 if he would be interested in joining the Heartbreakers, but Dave declined, due to the release of the Foo Fighters self-titled debut, many of the songs of which were recorded during his time with Nirvana as demos.
