Bruce Springsteen, Bono

The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame celebrated a quarter century as the self-appointed, oft-suspect gatekeeper for canonical artists in the rock world (no Replacements, no Sonic Youth, no etcs. — no vote of confidence, RRHOF dudes) with a pair of concerts at Madison Square Garden this past Thursday and Friday. Never mind that the Hall is technically 26 according to its articles of incorporation; 25 is a prettier number for a party, and also for packaging the concert’s highlights for the pared down HBO telecast, airing 11/29. We linked you to footage from night one last week, with performances and collabs coming from John Fogerty, Crosby Stills & Nash, and the like. Now we have some bits from Night Two for you, with Mick Jagger joining U2 on “Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of,” and similar stage-sharing from Black Eyed Peas, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, and on. Pair them with the pics and you almost don’t even need a subscription to HBO.

U2, Black Eyed Peas & Mick Jagger – “Gimme Shelter”

    Every blue moon or so the classic rock radio would suprise with something like “Rock And Roll Woman”…it had that deep in the woods deep beautiful mystical quality that totally isn’t in fashion AGAIN right now especially in the UK…it always made sense to me that csn should be doing that one///
