McCartney and Novoselic onstage in Seattle

Nirvana hero Krist Novoselic joined Beatles icon Paul McCartney onstage for a performance of Helter Skelter last night.

The musicians – arguably the most recognisable rock bass players of their generations – played through the Beatles track in Seattle on the third night of McCartney’s One On One Tour.

Novoselic and McCartney first met in 2012 when they worked together on the track Cut Me Some Slack, which featured on the soundtrack to Dave Grohl’s film Sound City.

McCartney launched his One On One Tour in California last week.
