PAUL MCCARTNEY & NIRVANA
Cut Me Some Slack (live on Saturday Night Live)
★★★ If someone had told us 12 months ago that Nirvana would reunite, with Paul McCartney parachuted in to replace Kurt Cobain, we’d have assumed they were taking the Pennyroyal Tea. But then, we probably didn’t think a Korean-language pop video would top the charts, or that Clint Eastwood would lose an argument with a chair. Shit happens. We roll with the punches. This one-off collaboraiton was written by McCartney with the surviving members of Nirvana. Would Kurt have approved? Probably not. But then, Kurt probably forfeited his right to an opinion on these matters when blew his own brains out in 1994.
