According to The Pulse Of Radio, at least one person was not entertained and excited about the jam that took place at Wednesday night’s (December 12) massive 12-12-12 benefit concert featuring Paul McCartney and the surviving members of NIRVANA. That person was late NIRVANA frontman Kurt Cobain‘s widow, Courtney Love, who took to Facebook even before the event to say she was “not amused” by McCartney‘s involvement, adding, “Look, if John [Lennon] were alive it would be cool.”
After McCartney, drummer Dave Grohl, bassist Krist Novoselic and guitarist Pat Smear performed a newly written song called “Cut Me Some Slack”, Love returned online to post a series of trademark incoherent comments. She followed those up by saying specifically about the performance, “if they dont do songs they didnt write (nirvana songs they dont own) i dont care.”
Love finished by taking a dig at Novoselic‘s bass playing in response to a comment from a Facebook user named Scott, who enjoyed the performance. Love replied, “scott really? i will repeat, with krists bass playing? lets be clear hes not exactly known for its brilliance.”
The song that McCartney and the NIRVANA members performed was written during a jam session that took place during the filming of Dave Grohl‘s upcoming documentary, “Sound City”.
