WTF: Paul McCartney to Perform with Surviving Nirvana Members in New York?
Published Dec 12, 2012If true, this has got to be the weirdest damn collaboration we've heard in quite some time, but reports are surfacing that Paul McCartney is set to perform at today's (December 12) Superstorm Sandy benefit concert at New York's Madison Square Garden with the surviving members of Nirvana.
The Guardian reports that drummer Dave Grohl, bassist Krist Novoselic and touring guitarist Pat Smear will appear onstage with the ex-Beatle, apparently to play a new song that came out of some jam sessions.
According to a spokesperson, Grohl had asked McCartney to "jam with some mates." Comically, it appears as if McCartney had no clue who the rest of the band were.
"I didn't really know who they were. They are saying how good it is to be back together. I said: 'Whoa? You guys haven't played together for all that time?'" Macca commented. "And somebody whispered to me: 'That's Nirvana. You're Kurt.' I couldn't believe it."
Up until these dudes actually hit the stage together, this just seems too weird to be true, but we'll just have to wait and see.
Tonight's benefit for the victims of Sandy also features performances from the Rolling Stones, Jon Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Kanye West.
