Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear: “Cut Me Some Slack” – Live

A couple of days ago, we reported that Paul McCartney would be joining the surviving members of Nirvana for 121212: The Concert for Sandy Relief.

It happened, and it was set up nicely by McCartney, who shared a little about his first jam session with the guys.

“I finally understood I was in the middle of a Nirvana reunion,” he said before the others joined him on stage.

The group performed “Cut Me Some Slack” – a tune they worked out during their jam and debuted for the live audience and broadcast.

McCartney rocked it on a cigar box guitar – including some impressive slide work – with Krist Novoselic on bass, Dave Grohl on drums and Pat Smear on guitar.

Seems pretty solid to us. What’s your take?
