About

From Wikipedia:

Krist Anthony Novoselic (/ˌnoʊvəˈsɛlɪtʃ/; born May 16, 1965) is an American musician best known as the bassist and a founding member of the rock band Nirvana.

After Nirvana disbanded following the death of its frontman Kurt Cobain in 1994, Novoselic formed Sweet 75 in 1995 and Eyes Adrift in 2002, releasing one album with each band. From 2006 to 2009, he played in the punk rock band Flipper, and in 2011, he contributed bass and accordion to the song “I Should Have Known” on the Foo Fighters’ studio album Wasting Light. Since June 2017 he has played bass and accordion for the band Giants in the Trees.

Outside of music Novoselic has been active politically, being involved in the formation of a PAC named JAMPAC (Joint Artists and Musicians Political Action Committee). From 2007 through 2010, he wrote a weekly column on music and politics for the Seattle Weekly website. He served on the Board of the electoral reform organization FairVote from 2005 to 2019, including 11 years as chair, and in 2020 became board chair of Zócalo Public Square.

[…] In 2012, Novoselic and Grohl partnered with Paul McCartney on the song “Cut Me Some Slack“, which was composed specially for the soundtrack of the documentary Sound City, directed by Grohl. The song was first shown on December 12, 2012, at the 12-12-12 festival, which brought together music stars for the victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York. The song was received well by critics. Allmusic called it a “tune with an immediate hook [and] melody”. The song won the Grammy award for Best Rock Song in 2014. The partnership was referred to as “Sirvana” by Novoselic, referring to “Sir Paul McCartney”.

On April 17, 2016, Novoselic performed “Helter Skelter” with Paul McCartney in Seattle as part of the One on One tour. […]
