He was a touring member. And then only because he was a marginally better guitarist than Kurt.If he didn't write or record with them, then I wouldn't consider him as being "in the band."
I wouldn't go by the standard of writing because Dave, Chad, and Krist didn't get songwriting credits on anything but Scentless Apprentice. I wouldn't go by the standard of recording because Pat recorded Unplugged
with them. Kurt wanted him to become a permanent member, and even said during Unplugged, "this is our new guitarist, Pat." Kurt kicked Chad out of Nirvana in 1991, but he's still considered "being in the band" at some point in the band's history by Nirvana fans. The only person who didn't belong there was Macca.
