Author Charles Cross:

"Kurt was fascinated by LaVey and wanted to get him to play on something. He said that several times when he visited San Francisco and went by the Melvins' house, which was just down the street from LaVey's. He had heard that he played cello. Kurt did want him to play on some future recording; he said this before they went into the studio for Nevermind."
