Omigosh, you guys, I had the CRAZIEST dream last night… Nirvana decided to reunite and replaced Kurt Cobain with Paul McCartney!! Oh man, I really gotta stop eating Bugles before bed…
Oh. Wait. That totally happened.
Yes, last night (or very early morning, depending on how you wanna look at it), at the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief in NYC’s Madison Square Garden, the decidedly very NON-New York former Beatle was the closing act in a night filled with musicians that no one under 30 remembers or listens to. Don’t get me wrong – it was GREAT seeing these O.G. rockers do their thing and remind us all that REAL music still exists in this world, but it wasn’t exactly a “Here’s one from our new album!” sort of night, if you get my drift. Still, it was a great cause, and lots of needed cash was raised.
And then, this happened – In the middle of McCartney’s set, he brought out the surviving members of ‘90s grunge rock band, Nirvana – Dave Grohl, Kris Novoselic, and Pat Smear – to play a brand new song that the fellas had all collaborated on. And you know what? It sounded EXACTLY like what you would imagine a collabo between Nirvana and The Beatles to sound like. Say what you want about McCartney, but the man can still rock out with his [bass] out with the best of them!
