Friday fanfare: “Gimme Shelter”

Here’s another version of “Gimme Shelter” that combines one piece of the Rolling Stones (Mick Jagger), two pieces of Black Eyed Peas ( and Fergie), and all of U2 to perform “Gimme Shelter” at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 25th anniversary concert in 2009. It’s to the credit of The Edge and Fergie that they fill in superbly for Keith Richards and Merry Clayton (two incredibly difficult pairs of shoes to fill to say the least), but the truly amazing thing to watch here is the 66-year-old Jagger easily keeping up with the 34-year-old Fergie in terms of stage antics and sexy charisma.
