mccartney beatles Nirvana reunites with Paul McCartney

According to the Guardian, the surviving members of Nirvana — Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic — will perform together on stage tonight at Madison Square Garden as part of the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert. And they’ve found a worthy replacement to fill the shoes of Kurt Cobain: Sir Paul McCartney.

The Guardian adds that Grohl recently invited McCartney to come “jam with some mates,” specifically Novoselic and Pat Smear. McCartney explained: “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?’ And somebody whispered to me ‘That’s Nirvana. You’re Kurt.’ I couldn’t believe it.”

It’s unclear what McCartney, Grohl, and Novoselic will play at 12-12-12, though McCartney suggested they “just make something up” for the jam session.
