Best Help From Famous Friends: The Superjam
If Joan Jett & the Blackhearts had been inducted any other year, the night would have surely wrapped up with a wild jam on "I Love Rock and Roll" featuring everybody from the evening. But when Paul and Ringo are in the house, there's simply no other option but to bust out some Beatles tunes.
There have been countless all star renditions of "With a Little Help From My Friends" over the years at Ringo concerts, but never one with this level of star wattage. With Paul McCartney playing his Hofner bass right next to him, Ringo led Miley Cyrus, Green Day, Patti Smith, Bill Withers, Stevie Wonder, Joan Jett, Dave Grohl, John Legend, Beck, Karen O, Joe Walsh, Gary Clarke Jr, Zac Brown and everyone else from the night through the sing-along tune. Miley Cyrus had a bigger smile on her face than anybody as she shared a mic with Mike Dirnt and belted out the chorus.
It seemed like a finale, but then Ringo got behind the kit and closed out the whole evening with "I Wanna Be Your Man." Billie Joe Armstrong and Tom Morello took killer guitar solos, while an ecstatic Grohl was happy to merely clap along. Even though it was 1:00 a.m., nobody would have minded had they played a few more, but when the song wrapped Paul and Ringo raised their hands in triumph, took a bow and walked offstage together.
