Paul McCartney Is The New Singer Of Nirvana

At least for tonight, anyway. Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic are teaming up with McCartney at tonight’s 12.12.12 Concert in Manhattan for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

2. Paul McCartney told U.K. paper The Sun:

“I didn’t really know who they were. They are saying how good it is to be back together. I said ‘Whoa? You guys haven’t played together for all that time?’ And somebody whispered to me ‘’That’s Nirvana. You’re Kurt.’ I couldn’t believe it.”

3. Eddie Vedder will be teaming up with Roger Waters, as well.

Roger Waters revealed… during a chat on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. “We’re doing a little bit of The Wall and a little bit of Dark Side of the Moon,” Waters said, including “Money,” “Us and Them” and “Comfortably Numb” – with help on the last one from Eddie Vedder.

4. The concert features an incredible lineup, also including:

• Bon Jovi
• Bruce Springsteen
• The Rolling Stones
• Eric Clapton
• Billy Joel
• Alicia Keys
• Chris Martin
• Roger Waters
• Eddie Vedder
• Kanye West
