Nirvana - Page 3
One of the greatest albums of the '90s, Nirvana's 'In Utero,' turned 20 this year and we're giving you a chance to win a major prize package featuring the 20th anniversary editions of this great disc.
For just about any band that eventually made it big, there's at least one guy who was in the lineup before they were famous -- their 'Pete Best,' if you will. But Jason Everman, who played guitar for Nirvana and bass for Soundgarden in the late '80s, narrowly missed his shot at the charts twice.
Paul McCartney's collaboration with the surviving members of Nirvana wasn't as unlikely as it seemed on Wednesday night. Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic joined the Beatle to close the 12-12-12 concert at Madison Square Garden. They sang 'Cut Me Some Slack,' which they wrote and recorded for Grohl's upcoming 'Sound City' documentary soundtrack, and the studio version is now available for sale on iTunes.
There's no doubt that the Paul McCartney-Nirvana member collaboration on 'Cut Me Some Slack' was one of the highlights of the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert, but not everyone is happy about the pairing. Kurt Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, tells TMZ that she was "not amused" after hearing the news.
The day's worst kept secret came to fruition about midway through Paul McCartney's 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit performance as his regular band exited the stage and the onetime Beatle found himself backed by the living members of Nirvana -- drummer Dave Grohl, guitarist Pat Smear and bassist Krist Novoselic -- for a brand new song called 'Cut Me Some Slack.'
