Paul McCartney Joined by Nirvana Members Onstage Again
Paul McCartney was joined by the three surviving members of Nirvana at his gig in Seattle last night (July 19), NME reports.

McCartney was giving the first ever concert at the Safeco Field in Seattle, the city whose grunge scene Nirvana became an integral part of. To mark the occasion, he welcomed Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear on stage during his encore to play "Cut Me Some Slack," the track they recorded together last year for Grohl's "Sound City" film project.

The Nirvana trio stayed on to play a selection of Beatles classics with McCartney: "Get Back," "Helter Skelter," "Golden Slumbers", "Carry That Weight" and "The End." Watch Paul McCartney performing "Helter Skelter" with Nirvana below.

McCartney first played live with Grohl and Novoselic at a Hurricane Sandy benefit gig in New York last December. A few days later, they played "Cut Me Some Slack" again on iconic US TV show Saturday Night Live - this time joined by Smear on guitar.
