The New Kurt Cobain: Paul McCartney

I’ll take “Things that make you go ‘Hmm’” for $800, Alex:

Paul McCartney will fill the role of Kurt Cobain when he plays with the surviving members of Nirvana at the 12.12.12 concert for victims of Superstorm Sandy on Wednesday night.

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”.

After that news, please feel free to wash your brain out with this book. (It’s 30% off right now, just by the way.) There’s a digital version, too. Kindle here.
