Dave Grohl - Dave Grohl's Paul Sir Paul Mccartney Track Was Written In Three Hours

Dave Grohl's new track with Sir Paul Mccartney was written and recorded in just three hours.

The Beatles legend teamed up with Grohl and his former Nirvana bandmates Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear to record Cut Me Some Slack, which features on the soundtrack of the Foo Fighters frontman's documentary Sound City.

They unveiled the anthem at 12-12-12 The Concert for Sandy Relief in New York last month (Dec12), and now Grohl reveals the songwriting process was an easy one.

He tells U.S. radio channel Kroq, "We walked in; we jammed the song. It just came out of nowhere. The best songs happen that way. We recorded it live and put a vocal over it and that was it. It was three hours and it was perfect...

"You have to understand, one of the great things about playing with Paul MCCartney or playing with Neil Young is that that generation of musicians, they cherish and respect and value the practice of just going into a room and coming up with something and jamming and making it a song. There's not like seven songwriters and seven producers and digital technology or whatever. It's like people getting in a room."

Grohl insists MCCartney was a dream to work with, calling him "just the sweetest, nicest, most awesome person".
