NEW SOUNDGARDEN VIDEO DIRECTED BY DAVE GROHL

_davegrohl

Dave Grohl has been a busy guy. Not only has he been putting the finishing touches to his documentary on Sound City Studios, but he has also been promoting his film’s soundtrack (with a little help from an ex-Beatle). Now the Foo Fighters frontman (and Nirvana drummer) can add a Soundgarden music video to his resume.

Soundgarden revealed yesterday that they were filming a new music video for the song “By Crooked Steps” with Grohl directing. The reunited grunge group posted candid on-set photos from the shooting via Instagram, including the one seen above. Though the video’s plot hasn’t been made publicly known, the photos indicate there’s some sort of biker-gang theme occurring in the video.

It’s unknown as to how soon we’ll get to see the video for “By Crooked Steps.” Either way, though, it’s just cool to know that Grohl and Soundgarden are collaborating in some fashion.

Video: Paul McCartney and “Nirvana” onSaturday Night Live

To quote Foo Fighters, “Second time’s a charm…” For the second time this week, the surviving members of Nirvana joined forces with Sir Paul McCartney to perform their song “Cut Me Some Slack” on national television. This time around, the all-star collaboration took place on last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, where McCartney was making his fourth stint as musical guest. (It marked Dave Grohl’s 12th appearance on the show!) McCartney also teamed with the Eagles’ Joe Walsh for a rendition of “My Valentine”. Watch footage of both performances below (via The Audio Perv). In related news, Grohl has shared the studio version of “Cut Me Some Slack”, which you can also find below. The song is also available for download on iTunes, and appears on the soundtrack to Grohl’s film Sound City.

COURTNEY LOVE SLAMS SURVIVING NIRVANA MEMBERS’ ’12-12-12′ PERFORMANCE WITH PAUL MCCARTNEY

Last night at the ’12-12-12′ Hurricane Sandy benefit concert, Paul McCartney performed an original song with the three surviving members of Nirvana. The musical collective wrote the song ‘Cut Me Some Slack’ during an impromptu jam session for Dave Grohl‘s upcoming ‘Sound City Studios’ documentary, later debuting the track live at the televised benefit. Although the song proved to be impressive to say the least, Courtney Lovewent public beforehand to say that she was against the idea. After learning that McCartney and Nirvana would be collaborating for the benefit, Love told TMZ that she was “not amused” by Paul McCartney’s involvement, although she added, “Look, if John [Lennon] were alive it would be cool.” Shortly after the performance of ‘Cut Me Some Slack,’ Courtney Love posted a long, scattered and nonsensical series of comments on the Facebook page for ‘Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge,’ which had just posted about the aforementioned TMZ article. Below is a compilation of her comments:

“funny we got asked to tour with alice in chains no disprespect to jerry as hes a n absolute gent but wasnt that,,, i mean isnt layne DEAD? sorry i had to pass maybe im old or pure or somes–t but wow. anyone ever read the former strangers dana giachetta book”youw ill make money in yourr sleep” its so beyond full of small numbers and she misses the grander point it sold about 8 copies, 4 to me and 4 to a famed hotelier out here i dated and am dear friends with. hmmm whats in that 2030 kimit sub pop nirvana package jonathan i was with you the night before you went to see mr geffen to acquire that 5% of kurts pub but its apparently inc llc and partnership too , cmon show me, fine get a supeona. glad i coudl help refinance the soho hotel in nov 94 not july emily ever been on property shark? its called research! i was playing cheap tricks first album in chrinocologal order to get my sib oop single of the month anyone says othrwise is disguting, is that richard lee still at it, i talked to chris cornell and he hates seattle too, i cant deal, the only time i felt anything was when i had a spitirtuL ephihany singing “jeremy” at bumbershoot i hope you liked it cos i saw ghosts for the first time, accuracy is my middle name. watch homeland when clare danes is right, trust me i have cried on the occasions the lawyers have promised theyd go for it and the fbi this time is different its federal. but i wont cry this time, i only care about his familty and bean and thats the f–king fgids truth any penny i get back is going inti a charity that prevents mortaage fraud and this happpening to anyone again, taking down the a=gates llp empire would be nice but im not stupid it wont happen n this life, not from me im not the messenger there some day though. yall got good copy now ill leave it up a few then ill delete.”

Although Courtney Love’s last line promises that she would delete the posts, they still remain in the comments section as of this posting.

A few hours later, Love posted some more odd comments, focused on her and Kurt Cobain arguing John Lennon vs. Paul McCartney, and ultimately saying the performance didn’t bother her since they ended up not playing a Nirvana song:

“yes we did get into paul and john fights- im a paul person (helter skelter) if they dont do songs they didnt write (nirvana songs they dont own) i dont care.”

However, Love trashed the bass playing of Krist Novoselic when she responded to a Facebook user named Scott, who posted that he enjoyed the performance:

“scott really? i will repeat, with krists bass playing? lets be clear hes not exactly known for its brilliance.”

Well, there you go. If you were wondering what Courtney Love thought of the performance, now you sort of have an idea. If you don’t care about what she thinks, we owe you five minutes of your life back.
