When Nirvana first started it would have seemed inconceivable that Fab Macca Mcfab, the Beatle himself would have ended up playing with them decades later. It would also seem inconceivable that Cobain’s widow Courtney Love would have made headlines by slating the concert and Chris Nosovelic’s bass playing.
Courtney seemed bothered by the band not being the original line up which is something she herself has done with Hole and was less than charitable about the concert, which is ironic as the gig itself was a charity gig. Younger readers may wonder what McCartney was doing playing with the rock band that change music forever when they broke through twenty years ago confusing Paul with Mr. Frog Chorus but in his time he was rock n roll as Nirvana ever where and Kurt himself would have been thrilled to have been replaced for one evening by a Beatle- one of his favourite bands..
Was Courtney right to sound bitter about the whole affair and were the band good or bad? comment please!
