Watch Dave Chappelle And John Mayer Cover Nirvana And Tom Petty
This week, Dave Chappelle turned up at John Mayer's "secret" show in Los Angeles, and ended up joining the musician on stage for some power duo action. The show took place at Hotel Cafe, where Mayer was performing old songs, along with some new ones from his new slow-release album The Search For Everything.
Once Chappelle joined him on stage at the intimate, $10 gig, the two played Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" and Nirvana's "Come As You Are." What a world.
Here's some more video of Mayer's set; he'll also be touring this spring.
There's a lot more on this YouTube channel, though oddly the covers with Chappelle weren't included in this batch of uploads.
