During the recording of Nirvana’s magnum opus, “Nevermind,” drummer Dave Grohl recorded several songs on a Yamaha snare drum borrowed from Butch Vig. The same snare was used by the Smashing Pumpkins during the recording of “Gish,” another alternative rock record released in 1991. Both records were produced by the now legendary producer, Butch Vig.

Butch Vig himself plays drums in the rock band Garbage, who achieved their share of success in the mid-to-late nineties.
