On Saturday (June 25) Paul McCartney made history as the first musician to perform at the Glastonbury Festival aged 80. But that’s not all – he also had some celebrity guests with him who made the audience enthusiastic: Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl. The latter in particular made for a memorable moment, as it was the Foo Fighters singer’s first live performance since the death of his bandmate and friend Taylor Hawkins, who died exactly three months earlier, on March 25, in Bogotá, Colombia. Here is our obituary.

    Together they sang the Beatles song “I Saw Her Standing There” and Wings’ “Band On The Run” – one could almost believe that Grohl’s good friend and fellow musician gave him this moment to get back on his feet. And where could that be better than in front of 200,000 people?

    The next memorable moment was not long in coming: Immediately afterwards, Bruce Springsteen joined McCartney on stage to play his song “Glory Days” and “I Wanna Be Your Man” with him. This constellation and song selection had already existed in New York a few days earlier. For “The End”, the big finale of the set, all three musicians came back on stage.
