U2 star The Edge got to play one of the most distinctive electric guitar riffs in history this weekend when the band covered a Rolling Stones classic.

The Irish rockers were appearing at the second night of this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame event in New York when they were joined by Stones frontman Mick Jagger to perform Gimme Shelter.

Jagger stuck around for another song to duet with Bono on U2's Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of.

This was one of several collaborations to take place at the gig, as Aretha Franklin and Lenny Kravitz joined forces on Think, while Metallica played with ex-Kinks frontman Ray Davies on You Really Got Me and All Day and All of the Night.

Metallica also performed Black Sabbath's classic Paranoid with Ozzy Osbourne, as well as Iron Man.

The first night of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame also saw a number of artists joining forces, with Stevie Wonder for example performing with acts such as Jeff Beck and Smokey Robinson.

In addition, music fans were treated to the sight of Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon taking to the stage together to play Bridge Over Troubled Water.
