A representative for Dave Grohl has shot down rumors suggesting the musician is planning to stage a Nirvana reunion tour by hiring a new singer to front the legendary band.
The drummer-turned-singer re-teamed with his former Nirvana band mate Krist Novoselic and the group's touring guitarist, Pat Smear, for a performance at the 12-12-12 charity concert in New York City last week. They played with Paul McCartney, filling in for frontman Kurt Cobain, who died in 1994, and revived the line-up for a second time with a performance on "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend.
The performances sparked rumors that the Nirvana members are planning to resurrect the band for a tour with a new frontman, but a representative for Grohl insists the story is not true, telling New York Post gossip column Page Six the rumors are "nonsense."
The collaboration has garnered mixed reviews from fans, and Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, blasted McCartney's involvement as "bad."
