British music magazine NME recently spoke with former Nirvana drummer Chad Channing. When asked if he would reunite with Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic in the future, he said:

Yeah, if they wanted me to. It'd maybe be something like Dave playing guitar and singing and Krist doing bass. That'd be about the only arrangement I could think of that we cold pull off.”

They also asked how he felt about not being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the rest of his former bandmates. He said:

I'm fine about it actually. I've always sort of felt that for me, everything's so much more about the music than the accolades.”

Channing was the drummer for Nirvana from 1988 to 1990. He contributed and featured on the band's debut album Bleach. He was eventually left the band, leaving Grohl to take his place. After his departure, he formed the band Fire Ants, who released their EP Stripped in 1992. In 1998, he collaborated with John Hurd and Erik Spicer forming The Methodists, who release the album Cookie. He is currently in the band Before Cars. Their last release was 2009's Walk Back. Their previous effort was 2006's Old Chair EP.

At the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, R.E.M.'s Michael Stiped led the induction of Dave Grohl, Kurt Cobain, and Krist Novoselic. Cobain's mother and Courtney Love were also in attendance, who hugged Grohl and buried their long standing feud. Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, St. Vincent, and Lorde all joined forces to perform a four-song set in tribute of the band.
