Speaking of McCartney, did you see that McCartney won a Grammy along, with three co-writers, for the song "Cut Me Some Slack"? Not all that remarkable, even when you consider that two of the co-writers were ex-members of Nirvana, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. The part that's really kind of mind blowing, is that the fourth writer was Pat Smear (above, bottom left). He was in Nirvana for a short time, but before that, he was in the seminal L.A. punk band the Germs. Though that may even be of ho-hum nature to most of you, as someone who saw the Germs many times in their heyday, just the thought of one of the Germs winning a Grammy with one of the Beatles is something straight out of Bizarro World. And it's also a good way to bury that McCartney post, but quick.
