Various media outlets are reporting that Nirvana will be reuniting tonight, Wednesday, Dec. 12. But instead of projecting a Kurt Cobain hologram, the band has apparently recruited Sir Paul McCartney to replace Cobain on vocals.
From an article in The Guardian:
The former Beatle will join Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic on stage in New York to play a new song after secretly working with the pair.
A spokesman confirmed that Grohl recently asked McCartney to come along to "jam with some mates."
The former Beatle suggested they "just make something up" and found himself playing with Grohl on drums, bassist Novoselic and guitarist Pat Smear, who toured with Nirvana for the last six months of the band's career.
It's a different tack from a band largely defined by Cobain's gravelly voice and prodigious taste for heroin. Beatvana/Nirveatles will be performing at a special 12/12/12 Superstorm Sandy benefit at Madison Square Garden tonight with Jon Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen. Also, a new group called The Rolling Stones is supposed to play.
The concert will be broadcast on a ton of different websites and TV networks, like AOL, AMC, Hulu, HBO, IFC and VH1 Classic. A complete list can be found here.
