watch The National and Bonnie “Prince” Billy cover The Grateful Dead on ‘CBS This Morning’
As you may know, The National's Aaron & Bryce Dessner spearheaded a massive five-CD (10-LP) tribute to the Grateful Dead. (If not, have a listen to Day of the Dead while reading our review of all 59 tracks.) The Dessners were on the Saturday, May 21 edition of CBS This Morning to talk about it and they brought along the rest of The National to play “Peggy O” on the show, and Bonnie “Prince” Billy tagged along as well to perform “If I Had The World To Give.”
If your parents (or grandparents) call you to ask if you've ever heard of The National or Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, you'll know why before they tell you. Watch the CBS This Morning interview and performance segments below.
