Paul McCartney ‘to replace Kurt Cobain at Nirvana reunion gig’


Sir Paul McCartney is to front Nirvana for one night only, it has been reported, when surviving members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic reunite for the first time in 20 years.

The former Beatle, not exactly known for his gravelly voice and brooding on-stage persona, is a choice of front-man that is likely to bewilder many Nirvana fans.

McCartney will reportedly perform a new song with the pair at Hurricane Sandy charity concert 121212, which will also feature The Rolling Stones and takes place in New York tonight.

He has been secretly working in the studio with Grohl and Novoselic, who formed the main line-up of the iconic grunge band along with singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain who committed suicide in 1994.

As if to further irk fans, Macca admitted that when he first started playing with the band he had no idea who they were.
