McCartney rocks the Cavern

A former member of the Beatles pop group, Paul McCartney, has returned to his roots for a one-off concert at a tiny basement venue in the English city of Liverpool.

Only three hundred people were able to squeeze into the Cavern Club, where the Beatles played in their early days, but the performance was broadcast live on television and on the internet to an estimated audience of tens of millions.

Paul McCartney last played at the Cavern Club with the Beatles in 1963; he said he was returning now because he couldn't think of a better way to rock out the century. Sir Paul was joined on stage by David Gilmour, from the rock band Pink Floyd, playing guitar and by Deep Purple's Ian Paice on drums
