NIRVANA Spreading The Wealth With New Box Set

VELVET REVOLVER's Duff McKagan, who watched the formation of NIRVANA as a Seattle native, told Launch Radio Networks that the new NIRVANA box set, "With The Lights Out", is going to provide a payday for more than just the members of the band. According to McKagan, other musicians who are on the box set — such as former members of the band and original SCREAMING TREES drummer Mark Pickerel — will be seeing royalty payments, which will help some of them quite a bit. "You know, there's some guys who got cut in on this," Duff said. "The original drummer from SCREAMING TREES, for example — he owns a record store, he lives in a little, little town in eastern Washington. He's just about to go under, (and) some lawyer called him and said, 'Well, you know, you're getting such-and-such percentage of this record,' and it's gonna change his life. These guys have been musicians all their lives, and never made a dime. That alone is a great aspect of this box set coming out."

"With The Lights Out" features 80 tracks on its three CDs and one DVD, 68 of which are previously unreleased.
