It's only a rumor, but word on the street is that Joan Jett may be standing in for Kurt Cobain when Nirvana is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tomorrow night.
This morning on the Foo Fighters ' Instagram page , there appeared a photo of Krist Novoselic ’s bass, Pat Smear ’s guitar, Dave Grohl ’s drum set, and Joan Jett's battered white Gibson Melody Maker guitar.
Last week, in an interview with Rolling Stone , Hall of Fame President Joel Peresman confirmed that some form of Nirvana would play at the induction, saying, " With the exception of Linda Ronstadt and KISS , everyone is performing."
Jett and the Foos are longtime friends and have played together multiple times, including on The Late Show with David Letterman .
This likely means that R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe will not be playing with Nirvana at the Hall of Fame induction, though he is scheduled to induct the band. Stipe was good friends with Cobain.
