Nirvana reunion at 12/12/12 concert: surprisingly inoffensive
And now the moment you've all been waiting for, my critical judgment on the Nirvana reunion at the Superstorm Sandy relief concert at Madison Square Garden 12/12/12, which subbed Paul McCartney for Kurt Cobain, next to Krist Novoselic, Pat Smear and Dave Grohl:
Ye olde dudes of rock played a new song, "Cut Me Some Slack," that sounded nothing like Nirvana, but had a bluesy simplicity that kept it at "good clean fun." It never got to "cool." But it never breached "embarrassing" either. And of course the cause was worthy. Check out the Robin Hood Sandy Relief Fund website right here.
