Some of rock’s biggest names got together over the weekend to perform covers from some classic rock favorites at a fundraiser in Malibu. Reportedly gathering with some of their famous friends to raise money for The Boys and Girls Club, Beck, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jakob Dylan of The Wallflowers (and son of recent Nobel Prize winner, Bob Dylan), Roy Bittan of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and a few others were in full force to rock out for a good cause on Saturday night.
The supergroup performance in the name of charity was captured and shared on various social media outlets belonging to various guests in attendance, including funnyman Zach Braff. The makeshift group of rockstars can be seen performing covers including The Beach Boys’ “Surfin’ USA,” Bruce Springsteen’s “My Hometown,” and Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb.”
Chris Martin also performed some acoustic versions of his own material, including Coldplay favorites “Yellow” and “Viva La Vida.” To make for an even better moment, he was joined by his daughter Apple, to perform a family-friendly version of Ariana Grande’s “Just a Little Bit of Your Heart,” with Apple leading the way on vocals while her famous dad played away on piano.
Unfortunately the fun collaboration only lasted one night, but who doesn’t love to dream about a real band with this lineup hitting the festival circuit in 2017? Moments from the performances throughout the night can be seen in some of the social media videos below.
