The Boss & Alejandro Escovedo Sing The Stones

Last night, Bruce Springsteen joined Alejandro Escovedo on stage at Asbury Park's Stone Pony. One of the world's great rock and roll venues, The Stone Pony has made its name by featuring early performances by local boys made good Southside Johnny, Jon Bon Jovi and, of course, Springsteen.

Maybe moved by the fact that it was Mick Jagger's 67th birthday, the two rockers tackled "Beast of Burden," the Rolling Stones' classic from Some Girls (check out the video above). Springsteen stayed on to duet on Escovedo's "Always A Friend" and "Faith" as well.

As with most Springsteen surprise appearances, he has a history with the artist he joins for some musical magic. In 2008, Escovedo joined The Boss in Houston to sing "Always A Friend." And Escovedo was the headline opener in the same year for The E Street Band at the massive and memorable Harley Davidson 105th Anniversary Bash, which drew a reported 100,000 fans to Milwaukee's lakefront.
