From the article on Dave Grohl's interview at LA's KROQ on recording with Paul:

Speaking to KROQ, Grohl called the Beatles legend "just the sweetest, nicest, most awesome person."

McCartney and Grohl had previously recorded some performances for Grohl's documentary on the iconic Sound City studios, in California.

Fleetwood Mac's Rumours and Nirvana's Nevermind are among the now legendary albums recorded at the studio.

Grohl later asked the former Beatle if he wanted to jam again.

"We walked in; we jammed the song. It just came out of nowhere," said Grohl. "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."

Eight months after they recorded the track Grohl asked McCartney if he'd perform the track at the Sandy benefit.

"You have to undertsand, 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," Grohl explained.

"There's not like seven songwriters and seven producers and digital technology or whatever. It's like peopel getting in a room."

I was listening to the radio while Dave Grohl was on, and one of the DJ's asked Dave (paraphrasing), "So, sometimes your phone rings, you answer it, and it's Paul McCartney?" "Is that weird?" Dave joked. Didn't miss a beat, lol.

I didn't care for the song - but I agree with bikelock28 that it was great to see McCartney let one rip.

Offsets "Kisses On The Bottom" and the image that he's an old fogie.

Someone posted an excerpt from the documentary with Paul:

I was getting chills watching this. The more I hear the song, the more I love it.

Between things like this and all the 50th anniversaries that we're approaching, it feels like an exciting time to be a Beatle fan.
