Paul McCartney will sub for Kurt Cobain as Nirvana reunites for Wednesday night’s special Hurricane Sandy relief concert at Madison Square Garden.

Nirvana’s Dave Grohl asked McCartney to join him and Krist Novoselic on stage for the special 12-12-12 event, according to The Sun.

“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.”

Cobain and Novoselic formed Nirvana in the late 1980s, and Grohl joined in 1990 as drummer. The Seattle grunge band’s brief but impressive run ended in 1994 with Cobain’s suicide. Later that year, Grohl formed the hugely-popular Foo Fighters.

Plus usually the front page reposts news like a day or two after the fact, so I just assumed it wasn't posted. :finger:

Gonna be the best thing ever! :heart:

Wonder how well Paul would take a bass to the face or what his stance is on smashing drumkits.

I never expected this to happen but I'm so excited now it has.

WCPhils 12-12-2012 12:38 PM
