- Aaron Burckhard
Burckhard played at Nirvana's first live show at a 1987 house party in
Raymond, Washington. He played drums for the band until December of 1987. Burckhard was no longer apart of Nirvana by the time band recorded their first demo at Reciprocal Recordingsin Seattleon January 23 1988( Dale Croverof The Melvinsserved as his initial replacement). Burckhard's dismissal purportedly came as a result of his volatile nature which propelled him into frequent physical confrontations with people. An additional complaint against Burckhard was that he did not take his membership with the band as seriously as Kurt Cobainwanted him to. Burckhard frequently skipped practice, which infuriated Cobain. The last straw occurred when Burckhard got Cobain's car impounded after getting arrested for fighting with a police officer. His drumming can be heard on the first five tracks of Nirvana's " With the Lights Out".
After leaving Nirvana, Burckhard played with Attica, which released one album in 2005. Fact|date=February 2007
