Question
Was Cobain a good guitarist technically? Was Novoselic a good bassist technically? Was Grohl a good drummer technically?

Answer
Hello again Rautus,

Although it is difficult to answer this question as I am not a musician and have little experience or working knowledge of  for any of the instruments played in the band;  the fact that they could play songs, write music, and rock out is "technically" good enough for me. Did NIRVANA play complicated music, not really. This is a purely opinionated question as much like art, music is subjective and beauty lies within the eye of the beholder.

Expertise

I can answer questions about the release history of NIRVANA from 1989-Present, questions about the history of the band, life & death of Kurt Cobain, the remaining members of NIRVANA, and most questions about his family. I can fact check tour dates, live shows, and just about anything related.

Experience

I helped out Carrie Borzillo, rock new editor for cdnow.com (now amazon.com) with fact checking, an interview, eyewitness account and was given special thanks in her book Eyewitness Nirvana. I've been studying NIRVANA since 1993 and have read literally thousands of books, magazine articles, and other publications throughout the last decade and a half. My reference collection is huge with just about every book, entire release catalog, and more from all around the world. I started volunteering for AllExpterts.com in 1999 before it was purchased by About.com sometime in the early 00's. You can find all of the answers to previously asked public question dating back to 1999. I wrote, edited, and published a NIRVANA newsletter (NIRVANA FOREVER), and online zine (About a Son; Lithium) that both ran 7 years on America Online. I've founded and sistered a lot of NIRVANA communities on LiveJournal.com (NIRVANA FOREVER, Kurt & Jim, and NIRVANA Elitests), and Yahoo.com (NIRVANA FOREVER).
