[Watch] Paul McCartney, Neil Young Perform ‘A Day in the Life’ at Desert Trip

Desert Trip, the latest addition to the ever-growing music festival family, marketed itself as the destination for those classic rock loving fans who don’t have a home on the current festival circuit, jokingly being referred to as “Oldchella.” Its first of two weekends sported three nights of headliners that would make any Baby Boomer gush: The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan on Friday, Paul McCartney and Neil Young on Saturday, and the Who and Roger Waters on Sunday.

As part of his typical marathon set on Saturday night (October 8th), Paul McCartney was joined by Neil Young for a mini medley of “A Day in the Life” and “Give Peace a Chance”; a Beatles favorite followed by a John Lennon classic. You can watch it below.
