Nirvana To Tour With McCartney?
After their second live performance, this time on Saturday Night Live, fans are asking: Will Nirvana and Paul McCartney go on full-scale tour? There's no official announcement, but HenneMusic reports that if you ask bassist Krist Novoselic, the answer is: "Absolutely." The surviving members of Nirvana unexpectedly reformed with Paul McCartney and Nirvana's touring guitarist Pat Smear for a 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert last week. They opted to write a brand new song, "Cut Me Some Slack", rather than perform any Nirvana or Beatles tracks. Novoselic would even tour with other classic-era artists, citing the Van Halen frontman as one potential example. "I love David Lee Roth. I would tour with David Lee Roth because I think he's great," Krist said. "It wouldn't be some oldies review; if we put a band together and we were making music and we felt good about it and there was that passion and that spark I'd do it in a second." Krist realises some Nirvana fans were disappointed to see the band reunite without late singer Kurt Cobain. To those fans, Krist says: "Who asked you?" But every band needs a name, and Krist adds that there was fan idea that he liked. "The best was when they called it 'Sirvana' (Sir Paul + Nirvana). I thought that was really good." Watch the band perform "Cut Me Some Slack" on Saturday Night Live:
