Paul McCartney teams up with Nirvana members again for 'Saturday Night Live'

Paul McCartney teamed up again with surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic on Saturday Night Live last weekend [December 16].

The singer had previously performed with the grunge icons at the 12-12-12: Concert For Sandy Relief earlier this week to play their collaboration "Cut Me Some Slack", which will feature on the soundtrack to Grohl's forthcoming documentary Sound City.

The trio were joined by guitarist Pat Smear to play the track again on the US TV show, while McCartney also teamed up with Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh for a rendition of "My Valentine".

The full details of the Sound City soundtrack were revealed earlier this week. Titled Sound City – Real To Reel, it will also feature collaborations between Grohl and Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac - on "You Can't Fix This" - and between Grohl, Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Joshua Homme and Nine Inch Nails man Trent Reznor, who team up on a song called "Mantra".

The soundtrack also features appearances from Peter Hayes and Robert Levon Been of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters and Queens Of The Stone Age associate Alain Johannes.

The film marks Grohl's directorial debut and tells the story of the legendary California recording studio where classics such as Fleetwood Mac's Rumours and Nirvana's Nevermind were recorded. It will be shown at the US film festival which runs from January 17-27, 2013.
