This year’s Bonnaroo featured three different Superjams, including one led by My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James and John Oates and featuring a hodgepodge of special guests. Just minutes after his own headlining set, R. Kelly appeared on stage to sing Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come”, and was followed by Billy Idol, who fronted a cover of T. Rex’s “Bang a Gong (Get It On)”. The set also included covers of Sly & the Family Stone, featuring original bassist Larry Graham and Alabama Shakes singer Brittany Howard.
