Paul McCartney jams with Nirvana at 12.12.12 concert

In a room full of headliners, from Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel to Roger Waters and Alicia Keys, Paul McCartney and Nirvana stood apart from the rest at the 12.12.12 Sandy relief benefit concert on Wednesday.

Word spread ahead of the event that McCartney was going to join members of the influential rock group for a reunion set, but it was still a thrilling surprise to see the rocker take the stage with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear.

The trio joined McCartney after the legendary Beatle gave a little story about how the reunion came together.

"So recently, some guys asked me to go and jam with them," McCartney told the crowd Wednesday. "So I showed up like you do, ready to jam. And in the middle of it these guys kept saying, we haven't played together for years. The penny finally dropped, I finally understood that I was in the middle of a Nirvana reunion."
And with that, they swung into a well-received performance of a song called "Cut Me Some Slack."

But that was just the highlight of a night filled with them, including Chris Martin and Michael Stipe's duet of "Losing My Religion," Jon Bon Jovi joining Springsteen and the E Street Band for "Born To Run," and Kanye West's 20-minute performance, representing as the only hip-hop act on the bill.
