GnR Rock The Bridge

Guns 'n' Roses wouldn't seem like anyone's first choice for an acoustic gig, but that's exactly what went down last night when the L.A. rockers performed a completely sans electric 7-song set at Neil and Pegi Young's annual benefit for the The Bridge School, which helps children with physical disabilities. (Traditionally, artists play acoustic at the benefit, which has been going on since 1986.)

And it wasn't all mellow either: rockers "You're Crazy and "Welcome to the Jungle" made the cut, the former in a funky rendition which you can enjoy below.

(Among those also on the bill were Eddie Vedder, Jack White, The Flaming Lips, and of course Neil Young with Crazy Horse.)

GnR's Bridge School setlist (10/20/12):

"You’re Crazy"
"Used to Love Her"
"Welcome to the Jungle"
"Better"
"Patience"
"Sweet Child O’ Mine"
"Paradise City"
