Last night, as advertised, Paul McCartney was joined onstage at the 12-12-12 benefit concert by the surviving members of grunge giants Nirvana, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and live guitarist Pat Smear.
With the Foo Fighters taking an extended break, Dave Grohl is keeping busy with his Sound City documentary. On top of that, signs are pointing to the former Nirvana drummer once again sitting behind the skins on the new album from Queens of the Stone Age.
The Beatles have just released a new, digital-only compilation titled Tomorrow Never Knows. The iTunes exclusive captures the band's "most powerful rock songs," including "Helter Skelter," "Revolution" and "Paperback Writer."
"Rock is dead" is a pretty popular sentiment these days (okay, it has been since Pete Townshend proclaimed the death of the electric guitar a few decades ago,) but while Jack Black was likely being tongue-in-cheek when he wrote the song "Rock Is Dead" off Tenacious D's new album Rize of the Fenix, he may have still been somewhat sincere.
I think it's safe to say that most of us were hoping that Courtney Love's attack on Dave Grohl was a one-off incident, but it looks like the Hole singer is still carrying a grudge against the Foo Fighters frontman.
