Macca & Fogerty: Birthday Party Singers
It must be nice to be richer than a pig in crap and to be able to throw yourself a birthday party and hire Paul McCartney, John Fogerty and Robin Williams to provide the entertainment. That’s exactly what private equity executive David Bonderman did on Saturday, hiring the three legends for his party in front of 700 of his closest friends at the Wynn resort in Las Vegas.
Macca, in the middle of a few North American shows, played for more than two hours and even tossed in a song he never does in concert, “Revolution,” which was written and sung by John Lennon. This is not the first private show for McCartney, who reportedly earned more than a million bucks, which is a spit in the bucket for Bonderman who is worth $2.6-billion.
