Nirvana Live At Reading DVD!!!

OMFG! My heart leapt when I saw that they're going to release a new Nirvana live DVD in November!!! This is their performance at the Reading Festival in the UK on 30 August 1992, and it has never been released on video before. According to HMV Japan's website, the DVD is due to be released on 26 November! Slightly more than a month away only!

2. Aneurysm
3. School
4. Sliver

Oh man, Nirvana are best watched live and I have never witnessed a full-length show by them before. Well, not that the opportunity presented itself very much, since Kurt tragically decided to end his life in 1994.

But the energy and stage antics of Nirvana remained unsurpassed even till this day, and no matter how many people have tried to imitate the smashing of guitars and trashing the stage, no one does it better than Kurt, and Nirvana.

I'm also very excited about watching this DVD to witness Dave Grohl's amazing drumming once again. I recently received my copy of the Foo Fighters' Live At Wembley Stadium DVD, and in it, Dave took a guest spot behind the kit for the song Rock And Roll, jamming alongside Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin.

It's always great to watch Dave drum, and it's great to know that he still drums fabulously after all these years, despite taking on the role of guitarist and vocalist for the Foos. His strokes are so precise and his arm swings and demeanour are so characteristic of him. He's my favourite rock drummer ever.

Yeah, so it'll be superb to see the pre-Foo Fighters Dave behind the kit once again, and banging the drums hard with Nirvana. 

Wow, all my favourite Nirvana songs are in there. Even early favourites like Love Buzz, Blew, Aneurysm and possibly my favourite Nirvana song, In Bloom. It's an amazing setlist.

Argh!!! I can't wait for this! Long live Nirvana!!!
