    Default Paul McCartney is: NIRVANA

    Teenage angst: 70 year-old man style!
    The sensational gig will see the surviving members of the grunge band together for the first time in 20 years.

    And former Beatle Sir Paul will sing with them as they play a new song at a star-filled charity concert in New York.

    McCartney, 70, has been secretly working with Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic after a recent session at a studio. The pair were founding members of Nirvana along with Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994.

    This might turn out to be listenable, but I doubt it will be anything special. I guess both bands were controversial at one point, but I still don't see them as similar at all. Just can't see McCartney fitting the atmosphere of Nirvana's music.

    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    It's for a great cause. Nirvana's Kurt Cobain is simply not replaceable. Period. The Beatles are a cool band but I only like a few is their jams. A lot of musical artists and musicians are performing at that special event. I wish our band The Offspring and my favorite band Young The Giant could've played live there as well.

    I agree. It just won't work, it's just a bad idea. Like you said awful.

    It won't be called Nirvana because Courtney Love has the rights to the name

    Take it for what it is, a tribute. Nothing more. I hope it stays that way, there are bands that can be revived but Nirvana isn't one of them as the main ingredient is missing.


    My first reaction to this was "lol wut?"

    Did she really bought the rights? How can she afford the money, since she also lost the rights to he's daughter Frances Bean Cobain.

    Nirvana only have the relevance they have today because Kurt Cobain died when they were a hit. If Dexter had died in 1995 we'd still be hearing how great Dexter was and how the Offspring were a great band. Don't get me wrong, I like Nirvana, but there's no way they would have that much importance these days if they had kept making music until now. They would have eventually gotten down to the relevance of The Offspring or Pearl Jam.

    For what is worth, just appreciate Paul and Dave are doing in remembering the great Kurt Cobain. Nirvana's legacy is not put to rest.
