Krist Novoselic Net Worth $40 Million

Krist Anthony Novoselic, or simply known as Krist Novoselic, was born in 1965 in California. Both his parents are Croatians who immigrated into the United States. When Krist was still very young, he listened to such bands as Aerosmith, Van Halen, Sex Pistols and others. Later Novoselic met Kurt Cobain and they had a lot in common when talking about musical tastes. After some time Kurt suggested that he and Krist create a band together, and Novoselic agreed. Their first attempts were not successful but they did not give up. When Krist and Kurt met Aaron Burckhard they created a band again, which now is known as Nirvana. Later Aaron was replaced by Chad Channing and in 1989 they released their first album, entitled Bleach. After some time Dave Grohl became a member of Nirvana and this was the time when the group became famous all over the world. The success of the band had a huge impact on the growth of Krist Novoselic’s net worth. Unfortunately, in 1994 Kurt Cobain died and the band ended their activities.

In 1995 Krist created a new group, called Sweet 75, with which he released one album also called Sweet 75. Later he worked with other musicians on different kind of projects. For example, Krist worked with Kim Thayil, Jello Biafra, Bud Gaugh and Curt Kirkwood. With the latter two, Novoselic formed a group, titled Eyes Adrift. They released one album and it added to Novoselic’s net worth. In 2006 Krist became a part of another band called Flippers, and worked with this band till 2008. Krist also performed with Foo Fighters several times, and this also made Krist’s net worth higher.

As mentioned before, Novoselic is also involved in political and social activities. He was one of the founders JAMPAC, a political action committee. This of course made Krist Novoselic’s net worth grow. In addition to this, Krist released a book in 2004 entitled ‘Of Grunge and Government: Let’s Fix This Broken Democracy’.

All in all, it could be said that Krist Novoselic is a talented musician and also an active personality. Although there have been some ups and downs in his career as a musician, Krist has still been able to work hard and create unique music together with his band mates. Nirvana is now known as one of the best bands in the music industry, and many people still remember this band and its members. So there is a high chance that we will remember Krist for a long time in the future.
