Paul McCartney Joins Neil Young For "A Day in the Life" In London

June 29, 2009 9:43 AM ET

Paul McCartney made a surprise appearance at Neil Young's concert at London's Hyde Park on June 27th, running out onstage to sing his "A Day in the Life" verse after Young launched into the epic Sgt. Pepper closer. Macca stuck around for the rest of the song, which Young has frequently used to end concerts in recent years, then the duo wrapped the concert with an impromptu vibraphone solo before exiting the stage. The performance came one night after Young's headlining set at this year's Glastonbury Festival on June 26th. Young and McCartney previously shared the stage together at the Bridge School Benefit concert in 2004, with the pair performing Young's After the Gold Rush song "Only Love Can Break Your Heart."

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
