From Wikipedia:

Georg Albert Ruthenberg (born August 5, 1959), better known by the stage name Pat Smear, is an American musician and actor. He is best known as a rhythm guitarist in the rock band Foo Fighters, with whom he has recorded five studio albums.

Smear was a founding member of punk band the Germs, and was the touring guitarist for grunge band Nirvana from 1993 to 1994. After Nirvana disbanded following the death of its frontman Kurt Cobain, its drummer Dave Grohl went on to become the frontman of rock band Foo Fighters, with Smear soon joining on guitar.

[…] On December 12, 2012, Smear, Novoselic and Grohl reunited again for a televised Live Aid Hurricane Sandy benefit. This time, they were fronted by Paul McCartney. They performed “Cut Me Some Slack“, the first track from the film soundtrack for Sound City.

On December 15, 2012, they performed “Cut Me Some Slack” on Saturday Night Live, once again fronted by McCartney.

On July 19, 2013, Smear, Novoselic and Grohl reunited on-stage, again with Paul McCartney, during both the first and second encores of McCartney’s “Out There” tour stop at Safeco Field, Seattle. They performed “Cut Me Some Slack”, as well as numerous Beatles’ songs. […]
