Watch My Morning Jacket Cover The Velvet Underground With Neil Young, Elvis Costello, & Jenny Lewis At Bridge School Benefit 2013
This past weekend, Neil Young held his two annual all-star Bridge School Benefit shows in Mountain View, California. And before the second of those shows last night, we learned that Lou Reed had died. Over the years, My Morning Jacket, who played the Bridge School shows, have covered the Velvet Underground’s space-folk hymn “Oh! Sweet Nuthin’” many times. And last night, they did a nearly 10-minute version of the song, with plenty of the other musicians on the bill helping out. Young, Elvis Costello, Jenny Lewis, and others joined in. Watch a fan-made video below.
