Last night, as advertised, Paul McCartney was joined onstage at the 12-12-12 benefit concert by the surviving members of grunge giants Nirvana — Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and live guitarist Pat Smear.
Instead of Sir Paul leading the band through a medley of Bleach tunes, McCartney donned a cigar box guitar for a new song called “Cut Me Some Slack.” You can watch footage of the performance below.
“Recently some guys asked me to jam with them,” McCartney said, before being joined by Grohl and crew. “So I showed up like you do, ready to jam. And in the middle of it these guys kept saying, ‘We haven’t played together for years.’ Then it finally dropped… I finally understood I was in the middle of a Nirvana reunion.”
