"The Stones and all of us are getting older. Nobody's giving it up. Nobody's lining up to be conventional," said singer Bonnie Raitt. "What does the establishment mean? Does that mean we, you, follow like sheep? No. We go our own way."
"Rebellion is lifelong. Rebellion, defiance is a lifelong thing. It's true," said singer Jackson Browne. "Rock and roll has always been the language of self-empowerment and of freedom and of self-expression and of community and it always will be."
"It was very cool to be here tonight and to pay homage to Marvin Gaye and to the great legacy of Motown Records," said singer John Legend. "It was great to play, of course, with Stevie Wonder, who has always been my greatest inspiration as an artist."
And the night was pretty nostalgic, even featuring a moment with Simon and Garfunkel.
