Joining forces: Sir Paul McCartney took Kurt Cobain's place in Nirvana as the band performed at the Sandy Relief Concert

He might not be the first person that you'd think of for a Kurt Cobain substitute.
But Sir Paul McCartney stepped into the late singer's shoes with gusto during the Sandy Concert at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, despite protestations by Courtney Love.
Joining Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, the remaining members of 1990's band Nirvana, the Beatle performed on lead guitar as part of the event to raise money for the Sandy Disaster Relief, but Cobain's widow admitted that she was 'not amused.'

Speaking to website TMZ, the former Hole singer said that if John Lennon had still been alive then it would have been a different story:
'Look, if John were alive it would be cool,' she said.
But despite Courtney's lack of enthusiasm for the collaboration, the 70-year-old fitted in to the grunge band with ease, as they performed a new track together.

Dave took his seat behind the drum set while Paul sang Cut Me Some Slack, which will be included on the soundtrack of Grohl's new film 'Sound City Movie.'
During an evening that included performances by Alicia Keys, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones and Kanye West, the collaboration stood out as a highlight, as the two musical powerhouses joined forces.

McCartney recently admitted that it suddenly dawned on him that he was in the middle of a Nirvana reunion while 'jamming' with some people recently.
‘I didn't really know who they were. They are saying how good it is to be back together,' he told The Sun.
‘I said, “Whoa? You guys haven't played together for all that time?” And somebody whispered to me, “That's Nirvana. You're Kurt.”
