Macca and Grohl mix it up on stage at the Grammys
Macca and Grohl mix it up on stage at the Grammys

Every big awards show need a big finish, and last night's Grammy Awards was no exception, with Paul McCartney sending everyone home (or to parties) with a trio of Beatles hits: Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight and The End.

But wait, there was more: After Abe Laboriel Jr's smashing rendition of Ringo Starr's one-and-only drum solo, Macca welcomed Bruce Springsteen, Joe Walsh and Dave Grohl on stage. The three joined Paul, guitarists Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray for an extended, six-way axe shoot-out.

The entire performance is a corker, but you can see The End at 3:21 in the above video.

Joe is a freelance journalist who has, over the past few decades, interviewed hundreds of guitarists for Guitar WorldGuitar PlayerMusicRadar and Classic Rock. He is also a former editor of Guitar World, contributing writer for Guitar Aficionado and VP of A&R for Island Records. He’s an enthusiastic guitarist, but he’s nowhere near the likes of the people he interviews. Surprisingly, his skills are more suited to the drums.
