Paul Performs With Nirvana at 12-12-12

13 December 2012

Paul performed with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear from Nirvana at last night’s 12-12-12 benefit concert in New York.

The Madison Square Garden fundraising concert is thought to have been the biggest music broadcast event in history having potentially reached an estimated two billion people.

Dave, Krist and Pat – performing live for the first time in nearly 20 years – premiered a new track with Paul titled ‘Cut Me Some Slack’. The song was recorded earlier in the year at Dave Grohl’s studio and will feature in his forthcoming documentary about Sound City Studios. The track was recorded using the famous custom-built Neve desk from the studios with Butch Vig at the helm. Fans can preview a clip of the studio version HERE!

Paul’s set opened with electrifying performances of ‘Helter Skelter’, ‘Let Me Roll It’ and ‘Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five’. Diana Krall provided piano accompaniment for ‘My Valentine’. Paul finished off with a rousing run through of ‘Live and Let Die’.

All proceeds from the benefit go to the Robin Hood Foundation who will distribute the funds to those in need after the devastating November storm. If you would like to donate to the appeal you can do so HERE!

An album featuring performances from the concert will be released on 18th December and is available to pre-order now from iTunes HERE!
