Jack White, Guns N Roses, The Flaming Lips & More For 2012 Bridge School Benefit
So Neil Young‘s annual Bridge School Benefit(Oct. 20-21 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View) has announced it’s lineup via a Youtube video. Performing will be of course Neil Young & Crazy Horse along with Jack White, The Flaming Lips, Steve Martin and the Sleep Canyon Rangers, Gary Clark Jr., Sarah Mclachlin, Foster The People, k.d. Lang and, oh yeah, the band currently touring under the moniker of Guns N Roses????
That’s right folks, Axl Rose and Co. are one of the bands that pop up in the video revealing the lineup. All of the terms in the dictionary that describe charitable givings, caring for other people, being a decent person-none of these qualities describe Axl Rose. So how the hell this all came about is beyond any of us here at Concert Confessions (except Reverend Justito) . It just doesn’t make sense. Anyway, check out the video below, and if it’s bogus then the world is more terrible than I thought it was.
Update 09/11/12: Ray LaMontagne has been added to the lineup.
