The day Paul McCartney stole away with Dave Grohl to write and record a new song, there were two other guys in the studio that the former Beatle didn't recognize. Joining Grohl and McCartney in creating "Cut Me Some Slack'" were Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear.

"It was magic for me playing with these guys," McCartney said backstage Sunday after they won a Grammy for best rock song. "Tell you the truth, I didn't know who they were. I found myself in the middle of a Nirvana reunion."
