Sir Paul McCartney took the stage at MSG for the concert to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims but he ruffled some feathers by performing with the remaining members of Nirvana — was it wrong for a Beatle to step into Kurt Cobain’s shoes for the night?

Sir Paul McCartney can usually do no wrong, but this legendary singer took the stage with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and other members of Nirvana’s band and now Kurt Cobain‘s widow Courtney Love says she’s “not amused.”

The 70-year-old seemed unphased as he sang songs like “Cut Me Some Slack.”

“I didn’t really know who they were. They are saying how good it is to be back together,” Paul told The Sun. “I said, “Whoa? You guys haven’t played together for all that time? And somebody whispered to me, “That’s Nirvana. You’re Kurt.”

Other singers performed in the evening like Alicia Keys, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones and Kanye West.
