Nirvana Fans Furious About Chili Peppers Video
Nirvana fans are furious because they believe the new Red Hot Chili Peppers music video featuring a parody of late Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain is disrespectful. In the video for DANI CALIFORNIA, the group dresses up like members of famous bands including THE Beatles and THE Sex Pistols. In one segment Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis appears as a sullen Kurt Cobain, with a candle extinguishing before him. The video's director, Tony Kaye, claims the band wanted to make sure no one was offended by the clip and even got permission from Nirvana's ex-drummer, Dave Grohl. He explains, "It was a big concern of (Chili Peppers bassist) Flea's. "Flea asked Dave Grohl if it was okay. Dave said yeah, Nirvana was about having fun."
