he auctioned a lunch date with him I believe it was on ebay. Money went to charity.


Meh, I don't miss him. Grohl had musical talent, Cobain made Nirvana Nirvana, Kris (wasn't it Kris not Krist?) stood there and made some decent basslines but was no driving force and couldn't carry his own band.

Krist(yes, that's how it's spelled) is pretty talented. Not the greates, but he had some nice basslines (Lithium, Lounge Act).

There was an article a while back that said he might release a solo album.
#10
Yeah, it is Krist. And I thought he was still in a band, but if you say he's quit, I'll take your word for it.

I quite liked his bassing though, fun, catchy lines.

if you listen to songs, he only really does that on bleach, the other albums have cool, different basslines in the background.

I heard he got into politics too. I know he had a post-nirvana band but I can't remember who was in it or what they were called.

i think that the reason nothing happened with him is because kurt made nirvana, and dave is self explanitory, if krist were to be more of a songwriter then he could have survived, unfortunatly, he wasnt.
#15
I heard he was in a band called sweet 75 and that didn't work out so who was doing a radio talk show host gig or something like that. I never thought he was to special though.
#16
^He was in both bands, but he played guitar in them. He released some CDs with both bands, but neither went anywhere.

Wtf? He is/was an amazing bassist with **** loads of passion. Much of Nirvana's music is really tuned down which means it has a great reliance on those driving bass lines that Krist played.<br>

He just diappeared off the music scale coz he couldn't bare to continue in another band without Kurt. Basically what Kurt wanted to do but couldn't.<br>

He's been offered places in other bands, actually i think he did play in a mid-late 90's band at some point, not sure on the name but apparently they were the most un-nirvana-like band you could hear. Doesn't mean they were bad like i think i should look them up sometime.

He got hit in the face with his bass at some award show and was never heard from again

Dude, he wasn't amazing, he was okay. And Dave offered Krist to play in Foo Fighters but he said no because he thought people would think they were ripping off Nirvana.

He was in Flipper, Sweet 75 and Eyes Adrift.
I don't really like Flipper but a like a few Eyes Adrift songs

o_O someone was using the search button. This is like 2 years old.

Ah well, I enjoy some of his basslines from Nirvana. They're pretty fun, but by no means complicated.

I saw a video of him at some convention a while ago

He could continue in another band without Kurt and did several times.
He was never a very good musician, the peak of his music abilities to my knowledge being his playing of organ on a Mike Watt record... that's his peak musicians ability. I really don't think he was a very good bassist or a remotely good musician, but that's just one man's opinion.


But you would think had he been so spectacular, he wouldn't have faded when he was trying not to.

Then again, there are plenty of famous musicians who are terrible at their profession. Fame is a popularity contest, after all.

I agree with this. But rarely does someone get the spotlight and lose it if they deserve to keep it.

True.

Though, even though I wasn't really around during Nirvana's huge success, I get the impression it was all about Kurt. Grohl just made it big because he's actually a fairly talented drummer and one of the nicest guys you could hope to meet. I think Krist suffered from the regular bassist/drummer problem. I.E, no one really gave a crap about him in the first place, he was just tagging along >_>.
