This weekend, Paul McCartney is set to play weekend 2 of the Desert Trip festival. Last weekend, Paul and Neil Young shared the stage for what was the height of the weekend for many, Rolling Stone reported, "Their choice of material was the Lennon-McCartney classic "A Day in the Life," which later shifted into John Lennon's anthem "Give Peace a Chance." Both McCartney and Young were all smiles sharing the stage, then tore into the raw Beatles oddity "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?" leaving room for Young to set his guitar aflame with a joyfully ragged solo, a searing moment likely to be remembered long after this weekend."Get The Beatles Yellow Submarine on iTunes
