"My mouth hasn’t shut up about you since you kissed it. The idea that you may kiss it again is stuck in my brain, which hasn’t stopped thinking about you since, well, before any kiss. And now the prospect of those kisses seems to wind me like when you slip on the stairs and one of the steps hits you in the middle of the back. The notion of them continuing for what is traditionally terrifying forever excites me to an unfamiliar degree."
—Alex Turner to Alexa Chung
Novoselic is proud to be, as he puts it, “the Nirvana guy” - a link, for fans and newcomers, to the music and history he made with that band and his friend. ‘I mean, what a privilege.’
But when asked about the downside – that he and Grohl are forced to carry that weight and memory in Cobain’s absence – Novoselic replies, firmly, "Kurt carries the music still. All of that music is a testimony to his artistic vision. Dave and I aren’t carrying the music now. It’s Kurt."
