Chad Channing was the drummer for NirvanaÂ from 1988 until 1990. Â He can be heard on the band's debut album,Â Bleach.
He was with the band at the beginning of theÂ NevermindÂ album process, but left for various creative differences, specifically with front-man Kurt Cobain.
Channing was eventually replaced by Dave Grohl.
Now, Chad Channing wants his replacement out front.
When asked about the idea of being included in a Nirvana reunion by NME, Channing offered this:
"Yeah, if they wanted me to. It'd maybe be something like Dave playing guitar and singing and Krist [Novoselic] doing bass. That'd be about the only arrangement I could think of that we cold pull off."Â
Grohl andÂ Novoselic reunited with four female vocalists and former Nirvana touring guitaristÂ Pat Smear for the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Â Currently, Nirvana has no plans on doing anything else, but the door is not completely closed.
Channing was not included in the Hall of Fame induction. Â On the snub he says, "I'm fine about it actually. Â I've always sort of felt that for me, everything's so much more about the music than the accolades." Â Grohl did acknowledge Channing and the other drummers who contributed to Nirvana during the ceremony.
Chad Channing now fronts his own band, Before Cars.
