CSN Play Dead At Glastonbury

David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash took to the stage yesterday at the legendary Glastonbury festival in Somerset, UK, one day after their frequent collaborator Neil Young headlined the first night of the event. CSN used this opportunity to play two songs from their forthcoming Rick Rubin-produced covers album. Within a set of their most famous numbers, from the massive Pyramid stage, the group played the Grateful Dead's "Uncle John's Band" and the Rolling Stones' "Ruby Tuesday". I would love to know if any other band has played a Grateful Dead song at Glastonbury since it's inception in 1970. Despite some speculation (and it being a really good idea), Neil Young made no appearance with his sometimes bandmates.

Crosby, Stills, and Nash's setlist was:
'Southern Cross'
'Military Madness'
'Marrakesh Express'
'Long Time Gone'
'Rock And Roll Woman'
'Uncle John’s Band'
'Helplessly Hoping'
'Ruby Tuesday'
'Déjà Vu'
'Almost Cut My Hair'
'For What It’s Worth'
'Wooden Ships'
'Teach Your Children'

Neil Young's headlining set the previous night was:
’Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)’
’Mansion On The Hill’
'Are You Ready For The Country?'
'Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere'
'Spirit Road'
'Cinnamon Girl'
'Mother Earth'
'The Needle And The Damage Done'
'Comes A Time'
'Unknown Legend'
'Heart Of Gold'
'Down By The River'
'Get Behind The Wheel'
'Rockin' In The Free World'
'A Day In The Life'

I was hoping for a Wooden Ship --> Ship of Fools segue. I also would have liked Get Behind the Wheel --> Wheel from Neil. But pretty good sets.
