As foreshadowed here yesterday morning, Sir Paul McCartney of The Beatles did, in fact, team up with the surviving members of Nirvana for a tune last night at the Hurricane Sandy benefit gig at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
McCartney joined Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear to play a song called “Cut Me Some Slack.”
We’ve got video of that performance at the end of this post.
“Recently some guys asked me to go and jam with them,” McCartney said before launching into the song. “So I showed up… and in the middle of it, these guys kept saying, ‘We haven’t played together for years, you know?’ The penny finally dropped, I finally understood that I was in the middle of a Nirvana reunion.”
That’s pretty insane, actually. Never did I ever think dudes from Nirvana would work with one of The Beatles. I guess if you can work with members of Led Zeppelin, why not The Beatles.
The track will be available to purchase as part of a live compilation album of songs from last night’s historic concert.
The song will also be included on the soundtrack to Grohl’s new movie, “Sound City Movie”.
Novoselic Tweeted prior to the show that the song is “kind of ‘Helter Skelter’ meets ‘Scentless Apprentice.’ It rocks with a heavy groove. St. Paul is powerful.”
