Roger Daltrey Fêtes Winston Churchill

Roger Daltrey helped politicians and distinguished guests celebrate the unveiling of a statue of Winston Churchill today on Capitol Hill. Daltrey began with Ben E. King's "Stand By Me" (starting at 40:30 on the video) to celebrate the trans-Atlantic alliance that Churchill helped forge. Rather cheekily, as politicians such as John Boehner, John Kerry, Mitch McConnell, and Nancy Pelosi were still present, the Who's outspoken lead singer closed the ceremony with "Won't Get Fooled Again" (starting at 54:07 on the video).
