They should go for the big one and put Ringo on drums just once.  But putting Julian Lennon, Dhani Harrison and Frances Cobain in there would be overdoing it.  We'd all love it, but it'd be overdoing it.

They sounded pretty good together on SNL last December.

The Nirvana/McCartney collaboration wasn't all that bad. I'm OK with this.

What a dry-heaving pile of donkey dick sauce.
Paul is a grinning, thumbs-aloft idiot of the worst kind, a minor talent trading on past glories from an age when it was enough simply to be the first, not the best. I would punch him square in the testicles if I were ever unfortunate enough to be in the same room as him.
Yoko Ono should've got this gig, she is a true genius and her vocal prowess knows no limit.
Hopefully Paul will borrow something from Dylan Carlson and do the right thing, soon.

"When I got back," said Steve Jobs on returning as Apple's CEO after more than a decade's absence, "Apple had forgotten who we were."

Relax, it's just a supergroup thing.  They're not pissing on Cobain's grave (or Lennon's or Harrison's, for that matter).

Besides, "Cut Me Some Slack" was a cool tune.

Dave Grohl said that Sir Paul really wanted to be a part of Them Crooked Vultures, but they already had John Paul Jones on bass.  It's nice they can get the old guy involved like this.

/Still want to see Neil Young take Kurt's place in some Nirvana shows

That's been true for most rock genres to one extent or another for a long time.

Nirvana sucked and the hair metal/glam rock it killed was way better
 
2013-07-23 02:49:01 PM  
fark's sake. When he died, sad as it was, I thought that the one bright spot in it was that they'd quit playing that spoon in a garbage disposal voice of his on the radio all the time. Boy was I wrong.
 
2013-07-23 02:49:50 PM  
I'll say it again: "About A Girl" with McCartney on vocals works.

/but "Sirvana" is a name the author gave them, not the name they've taken. They're not calling themselves "Nirvana", either.

//stupid, stupid author.

///Maybe they should go with "Moksha".

they can start a new band of just them.  throw paris jackson in there too, why not?

Erm no, that's my real opinion. Someone lost their shiat with me on here the other day because I posted a YouTube link to Mind Train by Yoko Ono and extolled her virtues.
I really love Yoko and her work, I really dislike Paul. Paul being in Nirvana is ridiculous to me, so I vented, but it wasn't trolling, sorry but that's the reality of the situation.

Nirvana are worried about brand dilution?  If Cobain were still alive, that alone would make him kill himself.

And from the article:

Here is how it works: to resurrect an identity, you need to orchestrate experiences that evoke the core identity that the organization would like to reinstate. In the case of Nirvana, these experiences are live performances on prominent high-profile stage.

Sorry.  Nirvana was never a band.  it was Curt Cobain's cult of personality and two other guys who were along for the ride.  Just because Grohl managed to have a career post-shotgun doesn't mean that they weren't session players in service of Cobain's highly overrated "genius."
 
2013-07-23 02:53:50 PM  
They recorded a song for Grohl's "Sound City" documentary. That's about it. It was a good documentary, but I would be more excited if Grohl recorded more music with Josh Homme and Trent Reznor.

Hey!  That awful period of Paul making terrible music died with Linda, which in itself was a sad thing.  No need to open those wounds again.

I cannot believe that there are people capable of hating on Paul McCartney.  He seems to be a class act by all accounts who has put out a lot of great music.

Fark sometimes sucks out loud.  And this is one of those times.
 
2013-07-23 03:02:53 PM  
I don't understand what DG feels he owes to his fellow Nirvana band-mates.  Sure, the foo fighters are just taking a break, but to go to this?

You overdid it and lost points with that one. I'll go 1/10

I would think it's really cool to see at least an ep to come out.
Dave and Paul can certainly rock.
I nearly blew out my speakers on the 121212 concert. Flat out awesome
