Josh Homme joins The Raconteurs for “Blue Veins”: Watch

Fans who attended The Raconteurs’ concert in Los Angeles on Friday night bore witness to the first on-stage collaboration between rock gods Jack White and Josh Homme. The Queens of the Stone Age frontman joined White’s Raconteurs for special encore performance of “Blue Veins”. Watch fan-captured footage below. Last week, White appeared as a guest on Homme’s Alligator Hour radio show. The two larger-than-life rock figures engaged in a free-wheeling conversation that touched on a variety of different topics, including childhood memories, hipsters vs. hillbillies, mob mentality, click-bait journalism, the lack of an “anti-scene”, and more. You can replay the episode here. As we now know, the episode also set the stage for Homme’s surprise appearance with The Raconteurs. Hopefully a more proper, recorded collaboration is also in the cards. In the meantime, you can catch The Raconteurs on the road supporting their first new album in 11 years, Help Us Stranger. get tickets to the band’s upcoming dates here.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunite to perform Beatles classics in Los Angeles: Watch

Paul McCartney wrapped up his massive “Freshen Up Tour” on Saturday with a dose of Beatlemania. During his closing gig at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, Macca reunited with Ringo Starr for a pair of classic Beatles songs. “We’ve got a surprise for us, a surprise for you, a surprise for everyone. Ladies and gentlemen, the one and only, Ringo Starr,” McCartney introduced the famed drummer. The two rock icons then fired off 1967’s “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)” and The White Album cut “Helter Skelter” to the delight of the rapturous crowd. (Read: A Hard Day’s Night: The Strangest Reported Reactions to Beatlemania) The treats didn’t stop there, however. Sir Paul McCartney brought out a second special guest in Joe Walsh. The Eagles member, who also happens to be Starr’s brother-in-law, popped up on stage to knock out guitar during the Abbey Road number “The End”. “The best part is we didn’t have a clue what we were doing,” McCartney later jokingly told the audience of the evening’s star-studded collaborations.
