NEW YORK (AP) _ Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel have joined
forces in a concert in New York to raise money for Barack Obama's
presidential campaign and the Democratic Party.
They got a little help from India.Arie, John Legend and
Springsteen's wife, Patti Scialfa, as they tore through the rock
legends' long list of hits.
When they launched into ``Born to Run,'' Springsteen said,
``This is for the senator.''
Springsteen and Joel focused more on music than politics,
alternating between each other's songs.
Springsteen hugged Joel during ``Spirit in the Night,'' then
ended up lying across the piano as he sang. Joel left the piano and
picked up a guitar for ``Glory Days.''
When Springsteen suggested they slow things down a bit, Joel
began banging out a playful version of ``Hail to the Chief'' in
honor of Obama's presidential hopes.
The cheap seats at the ``Change Rocks'' concert were $500. Big
spenders could shell out $25,000 each.
