A Beatle, a Foo Fighter and an Alt-Rock pioneer walk into a bar…
Or at least they attempted to. I feel there’s a joke there, but it’s a true story. Paul McCartney, Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins and last year’s Album of the Year winner Beck attempted to gain entry to a Grammys after party, but shockingly they were denied, and wouldn’t you know it, TMZ was there to flim it.
The party was hosted by rappers(?) Tyga and Bow Wow, and to give them a little credit, it appears as though the trio were attempting to attend the wrong party, although that’s still no excuse to deny (arguably) the greatest songwriter of a generation access. I mean, how much street cred can you possibly build up before you can get in wherever you want?
Luckily, McCartney and the gang took it in stride, in fact he joked that they needed to “write another hit” to get noticed, and then pointed to Beck and said “get on it”. When asked about the issue, Tyga and Bow Wow had an interesting reaction:
Get it together, fellas. He’s a Beatle for cryin’ out loud!
