Watch Guns N’ Roses and Neil Young team up for “Don’t Let It Bring You Down”

Neil Young’s work has often found the songwriter traveling alone, across desolate landscapes, yet sometimes he tags passersby to join along. Here’s one hitchhiker he should have driven past — at least judging from this. The moment captured below took place during the second night of Young’s Bridge School Benefit, an apt sequel to the mostly abysmal performance GNR delivered on night one. “It’s a song that’s always given me some hope throughout the years,” Axl Rose said of “Don’t Let It Bring You Down”, to which a defeated Young thought, ”I failed him.” Watch the footage if you dare below (via Antiquiet).

I watched all the youtube vids of Axl and Co. performances from the Bridge School show and the only song that was pretty rough was “Better” which is a tough one to pull off acoustic. “You’re Crazy” was superb ( fan vid since taken down by Neil’s production company) This one is fun. Bashing on Axl, no matter what the context, has been trendy since 1987. Lazy music writers with no creativity usually foolishly think bashing Axl and his merry group of misfits is a good way to get readers to their sucky blog or publication. Same old story Axl has been dealing with the media for 20 years! Easy Target. Give the guy a break, put down yr Odd Future or Dear Tick mp3s kids and actually listen to some rock-N-fukin-roll for once. Plus he was doing it for a great cause-why not focus on that, instead of the negative? suck it COS.

Agreed Stew. The writers for COS tend to be trendy indie douches. I am sure the writer is just sad TV on the Radio wasn’t asked to play.
