I couldn't believe it the first time I saw it. Apparently McCartney didn't know who Grohl or Novoselic were.

 

Pat Smear may also be making an appearance :D

In the article I read it said Paul rang up Dave Grohl.... to ask specifically. Weird.

I genuinely wish Paul McCartney would fuck off from the music scene and just retire already. Don't have a problem with his philanthropies and whatnot, but the man needs to stop being into RoCk N RolL MaN. Christ.

Macca >> Cobain.

 

 

Hopefully this doesn't get in the way of the much-needed McCartney/Springsteen duet. Anyway who said they're playing Nirvana songs? It's only news because it's Grohl and that other bloke playing together for the first time since Courtney Love had Cobain killed or whenever. I mean, since Cobain killed himself or whenever.

Novoselic played on the last Foo's album.

I don't think this is a Nirvana reunion at all, the media just like to overreact. I also believe that Krist played with the Foo Fighters for one of their secret shows promoting Wasting Light (I'm not sure, though). He played bass and accordion on the record.

Sounds like a stunt for the 12.12.12 Super Storm Sandy benefit concert that's happening tonight.  I know they've all been announced to play; maybe they'll just jam some fun tunes together and then perform separately.  Best case scenario in my humble opinion.

Novoselic played on the last Foo's album.

There was also a mini-reunion during the Foos' first club show to promote Wasting Light, at Palomino's in LA. Dave, Krist and Pat joined up to perform Marigold.

 

As to McCartney, the man still puts on legendary concerts (with a pyro show during Live and Let Die that would make even KISS suffer from penis envy), but I just don't see his voice or demeanor working in any way with Nirvana songs.

Now I'm a massive Macca fan but this would be a complete joke if he is going to sing a Nirvana song. It'd be less awkward if Grohl & Novoselic joined in one a song by Paul. And strange quote by him too "I didn't really know who they were" because he and Dave Grohl are good mates actually.

 

Honestly, I wish that Paul didn't do this big events stuff, it's always same old Hey Jude or Let It Be and his performances at the jubilee & the olympics this year were pretty awful because he can't sing the old songs very well live these days.
