The Who Team With Former Drummer Kenney Jones For Benefit

When the great Keith Moon passed away in 1978, The Who called upon Faces drummer Kenney Jones to replace him. Jones' tenure in the band lasted through The Who's 1982 "Farewell Tour." On Saturday night Jones finally teamed with his old mates for a short set as part of the Rock N Horsepower benefit in Surrey, England.

Saturday's show was a benefit in aid of prostate cancer, an illness Jones was diagnosed with last year. Kenney was joined by many musicians besides The Who's Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey at the benefit including Mick Hucknall (Simply Red), Jeff Beck and Mike Rutherford (Genesis). According to ABC News, highlights included Beck's instrumental "A Day In The Life," Hucknall leading versions of the Faces' hits "Stay With Me" and "Debris," Rutherford on Genesis' "I Can't Dance" and a cover of "Wild Thing" featuring Beck and Hucknall.

The Who rolled through a handful of their greatest hits such as "I Can't Explain," "Substitute," "The Kids Are Alright," "Pinball Wizard" and "5:15" with Jones on drums at the benefit. Watch The Who perform "I Can't Explain" with Kenney Jones behind the kit:
