Neil Young together with Elvis Costello, My Morning Jacket and Jenny Lewis performed a tribute to Lou Reed at the Bridge School Concert in Mountain View, California on Sunday.
The combo performed 'Oh! Sweet Nuthin' for Lou. The song was originally recorded by Lou Reed with the Velvet Underground in 1970 and featured on the band's 'Loaded' album but the original song was vocals by Doug Yule, not Lou Reed.
Reed performed at Young's 1997 Bridge School Concert.
Neil and Pegi Young founded the Bridge School Concerts as a fundraiser for their children's school. The first concert was held on October 13, 1986.
The Bridge School is a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure that individuals with severe speech and physical impairments achieve full participation in their communities through the use of augmentative & alternative means of communication (AAC) and assistive technology (AT) applications and through the development, implementation and dissemination of innovative life-long educational strategies.
The 2013 Bridge School concert also featured Crosby, Still, Nash & Young, Tom Waits, Arcade Fire, Heart, Diana Krall, fun, Jack Johnson and Queens of the Stone Age.
