Sound City

When Paul McCartney played in Seattle on Friday (July 19) he brought about yet another reunion with the surviving members of grunge legends Nirvana. Seattle, which was the band's hometown, seemed like an appropriate place for Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, bassist Krist Novoselic, and Nirvana’s touring guitarist Pat Smear to share a stage once again.

The trio played with Macca in New York City in December last year, where they debuted the newly written tune "Cut Me Some Slack." That was also the first song they played together in Seattle. But the mini-set, which turned out to be the encore of McCartney’s own performance also included, among others, “Get Back,” “Long Tall Sally,” “Helter Skelter,” and “The End.”
