This was Paul McCartney performing with Nirvana last night

At last night’s 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert last night, Sir Paul McCartney fronted for a reunited Nirvana (Krist Novaselic, Dave Grohl, Pat Smear) doing an original song called “Cut Me Some Slack”. I’m not sure who wrote it, but it sounds like a Grohl creation.

Also check out Michael Stipe and Chris Martin performing “Losing My Religion” and Eddie Vedder and Roger Waters performing “Comfortably Numb”

There’s a small campaign to help them get back on their feet and get a some basic supplies for them and their children.
