Next Up, Foster The People With Special Guest Bill Withers
Yesterday, while most of America was honoring the men and women who served our country so that we may have the freedom to enjoy hot dogs, BBQs, beaches and the security of wearing white pants through Labor Day, somewhere in Minnesota, a small handful of people celebrated Memorial Day another way.
Straight from the files of WTF, please enjoy Journey's Steve Perry as he picks this particular long-weekend to come out of a 20 year retirement to join the Eels for a rendition of the Eels "It's A Motherfucker."
When Perry asked why the Eels hadn't done any of his songs, Mark Everett Oliver said that they were waiting for him, and so for the encore, the Eels and Perry take on "Open Arms" and "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'."
And there you have it. For reals, as the kids say.
