At Neil Young's annual Bridge School Benefit, it's a bit of a tradition for the performers to jam together in a giant ensemble at the end of the show.

This year (now the 26th annual Bridge School Benefit) saw musicians such as Jack White, Eddie Vedder and members of Guns 'N' Roses take to the stage to jam with Neil Young for his classic tune 'Rockin' in the Free World'.

Other performers on stage included Gary Clark Jr., Lukas Nelson and Wayne Coyne. The notable exception to the all-star jam was Axl Rose, who did not take part despite the fact that some of his band mates took part in the jam at the Shoreline Amphitheater.

You can check it out in the video below:

Despite being well-known as one of the world's most brilliant lead guitarists, Neil Young pulled out an unexpected rendition of 'Singer Without a Song' at the gig, which sees Young playing piano.

Young, who organises the annual concert with his wife Pegi has consistently attracted the biggest names in rock music to help raise money for children with speech and physical impairments.

Eddie Vedder has played at previous benefits with Pearl Jam, but at this year's show his appearance came as a surprise not only to the audience, but also to him. He claimed that opening for Guns 'N' Roses was the last thing he thought he'd be doing when he woke up that morning.
