Not since 1994—the year Kurt Cobain committed suicide—have Nirvana fans experienced the amount of tragedy that Paul McCartney is about to cause by appearing on stage tonight with "Dave Grohl and Friends," AKA the remaining members of Nirvana. The news broke this morning when The Sun reported that McCartney was not only too British to know who Nirvana was, but also too old to remember who he was sharing the stage with:
If there are three things I've learned about [people who are attracted to men], it's that they love a) dudes who play guitar, b) dudes who pull off the perfectly-loosened tie and rolled-up sleeves look, and c) dudes who are Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Behold: I bring you all three, in this video from a Sundance event last night. Please watch, swoon, and most importantly, share with all your friends.
This cute little guy can't quite form the chords, but what he lacks in ability he makes up for in adorableness.
To the relief of Steve Jobs, the Beatles finally plan to let their music go digital in 2008, Paul McCartney told Billboard. Boom! McCartney says the holdup was contractual, but other reports suggest the last hurdle to bringing the Beatles online was resistance from the estate of George Harrison. But his music went online in October and his widow, Olivia Harrison, said she expects the Beatles to go digital in 2008.
Next week's special Apple press event will be disappointing to Beatles fans — a group that included CEO Steve Jobs. Silicon Alley Insider reports that, despite an homage to the Beatles on the invitation, which reads "The beat goes on," a long-awaited announcement that the Beatles library will be available on iTunes won't be part of the September 5 event. Instead, it will feature, yes, yet more iPods. Are they still making those tired old things?
