Billy Shears has always been a really shitty frontman, even compared to Kurt Cobain.
THE DREAM IS OVER

it took all that talent to write a Grand Funk Railroad song?
The best thing about this is that Kurt Cobain was not a McCartney fan by any stretch of the imagination. I wish I could find the specific quote I'm thinking of but no luck, I think it's in the diary excerpts that were published after his death. The gist of is that he goes on record as being influenced by the Beatles but amends it with "(but please god not Paul)" or something very close to that.
Not sure if this is what you're thinking of, but Kurt mentions his hatred for Paul right at the end.
That's a different thing but it'll do just as well.
Just when I thought Hurricane Sandy couldn't get any worse, it goes and does something like this...
AND TOTALLY REDEEMS ITSELF!
Seems to work, stars for the end.
I don't care if you have Beethoven, George Clinton, and Ronald Jenkees on stage together, if they write a benefit song, it will be embarrassing. Benefit songs are by some law of physics automatically the worst, no matter who writes them.
They are a thousand times more painful when you're in the audience and can be seen by others.
Speaking of benefit concerts, according to Michael Stipe, before killing himself Kurt told William Burroughs he wanted to change the sound of Nirvana, but didn't think anyone would let him. So Kurt killed himself because even he knew Nirvana sucked.
I was hoping for Smells Like Teen Spirit. or at least something off of Bleach.
My mom was all excited about this. "Paul McCartney is playing with Nirvana!" I have only a cursory knowledge of how modern American music works, but this is exactly what I thought would happen. The band would play the dumb song correctly, and the vocals would be retarded. I saw Paul and Sheila E play some crap in LA once, Sheila E is amazing, but McCartney's kind of a bummer. I don't give a fuck about him at all.
Paul is fucking awful. Dave is a good drummer. Krist is the most mediocre bassist of all time. What the hell is anyone from The Germs doing here? This is the most embarrassing musical moment of all time. 5 stars.
(PS: The Germs ruled.)
