Sir Paul McCartney, Steven Van Zandt Cover the Beatles’ ‘I Saw Her Standing There’
Rock legends and Stern Show veterans share the stage in LondonNovember 9, 2017
Sir Paul McCartney recently made a surprise cameo during a Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul concert in London for an epic cover of the Beatles hit “I Saw Her Standing There.”
Footage of the performance (above) begins with Little Steven, a.k.a. “Sopranos” star and longtime Bruce Springsteen bandmate Steven Van Zandt, revealing he has “some unfinished business” with Sir Paul before ushering him onto stage—much to the crowd’s delight.
The backing band then launches into a rendition of “I Saw Her Standing There,” a smash single from the Beatles’ 1963 debut studio album “Please Please Me.” Sir Paul and Steven share a mic for the spirited performance, with the rock legends (and fellow Stern Show veterans) both harmonizing and alternating lyrics.
As the song ends, Steven dedicates it to rock pioneer Little Richard, one of the many artists who has famously covered the tune.
Sir Paul, who in 2017 teamed up with everyone from Foo Fighters to his former bandmate Ringo Starr, last joined the Stern Show in 2013. During his visit, he and Howard discussed several of the nearly countless hits he has penned throughout his career.
Steven, meanwhile, last visited in 2012 when he and the King of All Media spoke about a variety of topics, including Steven’s latest Netflix series and performing alongside the Boss during a Super Bowl halftime show.
