MJ Kim/MPL Communications Ltd.Money may not be able to buy you love, but it apparently can pay for some hugely famous rock stars to play at your birthday party. This past Saturday, Paul McCartney and John Fogerty performed at a 70th birthday bash for David Bonderman, co-founder of the TPG Capital private equity investment firm, at the Wynn resort in Las Vegas.
The New York ***** reports that the Beatles legend hit the stage for more than two hours, and delivered renditions of such Fab Four classics as "Revolution" and "The Long and Winding Road." Fogerty, whose set included Creedence Clearwater Revival hits like "Proud Mary" and "Bad Moon Rising," apparently was pretty stoked to be sharing a bill with McCartney, as the roots rocker posted pics of Sir Paul and him together on his Facebook page.
The party, which reportedly was attended by about 700 friends and associates of Bonderman, also featured a performance by comedian/actor Robin Williams. It's not the first time that the financier has thrown himself a star-studded birthday blowout: when he turned 60, Bonderman hired The Rolling Stones and John Mellencamp to play at a bash at Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
McCartney's fee for such an event is estimated to be more than $1 million, but don't worry, Bonderman can afford it: According to Forbes, his net worth is $2.6 billion.
