▶ "Oh! Sweet Nuthin'": Tribute to Lou Reed at 2013 Bridge School Benefit Concert - Neil Young & Friends
Here's a tribute to the late, great Lou Reed at the 2013 Bridge School Benefit Concert by Neil Young & Friends.
The loss of the hugely influential Lou Reed came just a day before the annual Bridge concerts, so there was great anticipation about not if -- but who - would step forward to pay homage to Mr. Street Hassle himself. The tribute task fell to My Morning Jacket's Jim James, who covered the Velvet Underground’s “Oh! Sweet Nuthin’” along with Neil Young, Elvis Costello, Jenny Lewis, and more.
Also, check the great save by the strings when the strap comes off of Neil's guitar towards the end.
On February 18, 2010, Lou Reed paid tribute to Neil Young at a concert for the Vancouver Olympics Tribute. Coming on stage in leather, Reed played a heavy electric rap version of “Helpless”.
