Paul McCartney wrote:
"I didn't really know who they were," the 70-year-old Beatles legend told The Sun. "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."

He knows who Kurt is but he doesn't know who the other two are, apparently. What does Paul know about the plight of Ringos?

The Sun is the biggest load of shiitake newspaper, I cannot believe that he wouldn't know who the rest of Nirvana were!!

This whole news story's kinda dumb, I think he's just singing a song with them not tryna BE Kurt!

They specifically asked him though, so I suppose they have their reasons.

I see your weirdness and I raise you Courtney Love.

Just imagine if she took on the role of Cobain.

Or Yoko Ono.

Okay, now I don't know which one would be better. Courtney Love would be some kind of awesome blasphemy, but Yoko Ono would be... like nothing ever seen before. I don't particularly mind McCartney doing it. Would be a lot better than anything else he's done for twenty years.

i dont think there is a remote chance in hell that Dave Grohl would ever walk onto the same stage as Courtney Love.

I was super against it until I saw the performance. Then it was just like a bunch of aged dudes having fun playing a song that sounded like The Beatles' Helter Skelter and The Word mixed together with Dave Grohl screaming. Then I remembered I don't care.
Then I saw Krist and got giggly a bit and was happy to see him jamming on bass again.

yeah i havent watched yet but apparently they had all jammed together before and then wrote a song together and that's what they played i guess?

whatever i read led me to believe they would be playing several Nirvana songs with Paul as Kurt and i just thought that was beyond weird.

either the media blew it into something it wasnt (go figure) or i read into it what wasnt there ;-)

yeah, i think it was strategic. i hadn't heard of the concert until that morning when people were buzzing about the paul as kurt thing. i bet they got a lot more donations because of it. (i know for sure they got an extra tenner) :-)

They were billed as Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl and Friends. Not really a Nirvana reunion. The whole thing was kinda weird. I do like the idea of Dave Grohl fronting a Nirvana reunion and getting a new drummer. That would be wild.

Somewhat related...the guy they got to replace Layne Staley of Alice in Chains sounds remarkably like him. At least on the records.

Speaking of Yoko Ono, I love her cover of a song from Hedwig and the Angry Ince. It has a totally different meaning with her singing it!

I know, unrelated, whatever.
