Paul McCartney welcomed Beck — this year's big Grammy winner — onstage during his Wednesday night performance at PETA's 35th anniversary gala, and the two jammed out to the Beatles' classics "I've Just Seen a Face" and "Drive My Car."
"Thanks to @Beck and everyone at #PETA35! Sorry we didn't get to play Beck In The USSR, Get Beck or Paperbeck Writer!" McCartney joked on Twitter
the day after the event.
PETA released a 30-second clip
of the duet, however other attendees posted bootleg videos of the entire performance to YouTube within hours of the event (the duet begins at minute 24:01 in the video below).
Rolling Stone reported
that the event saw not only a performance from the rock 'n' roll royals, but also served as a launching pad for PETA's new pet-adoption campaign
featuring the Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love."
As for McCartney, he'll set out on a new North American leg of his "Out There" tour on October 13 in Columbus, Ohio.
On Friday, he also reissued 1982's "Tug of War" and 1983's "Pipes of Peace," both of which are deluxe editions with bonus audio.
"When I first heard the name, that's what appealed to me: 'People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals,'" McCartney said at the event. "I thought that was really a very dignified, very cool title. They've got 35 years of saving so many animals. And we love them."
The event was hosted by Pamela Anderson and Anjelica Huston, and celebrities in attendance included Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, Wu-Tang Clan's RZA, Kesha, Rob Zombie, Moby, Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal, and AFI frontman Davey Havok.
