On Saturday, The Who 's Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey reunited onstage with the band's former drummer Kenney Jones for the first time in more than 25 years.  The occasion was the Rock 'n' Horsepower benefit concert , which raised money for the Prostate Cancer UK organization and took place at the Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Surrey, England.

Townshend and Daltrey were just two of many well-known musicians who performed with Jones at the event, which also featured appearances by Jeff Beck , Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall , Genesis and Mike & the Mechanics guitarist Mike Rutherford , Moody Blues singer/bassist John Lodge , ex- Foreigner bassist Rick Wills and John Parr , among others.

A variety of videos featuring highlights from the show have been posted on YouTube .  The footage includes clips of Townshend, Daltrey and Jones playing the Who classics "I Can't Explain," "Substitute," "5:15," "Pinball Wizard" and "The Kids Are Alright."

Other videos capture Beck playing an instrumental version of The Beatles ' "A Day in the Life," Hucknall singing The Faces ' "Stay with Me" and "Debris," Beck and Hucknall performing The Troggs ' "Wild Thing" together, Rutherford and Mike & the Mechanics singer Tim Howar playing Genesis' "I Can't Dance" and a couple of other tunes, Lodge delivering a rendition of "Nights and White Satin" and a bevy of stars -- including Townshend, Hucknall, Parr and Wills -- playing a version of The Rolling Stones ' "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (but I Like It)."

As previously reported, Jones was diagnosed with prostate cancer last summer, and has been undergoing treatment for the disease.  Prostate Cancer UK focuses on raising awareness about the prostate cancer and also provides financial support to men who are battling the disease.

Kenney is founding drummer of both The Faces and The Small Faces , and joined The Who in late 1978, following the death of Keith Moon .  Jones' last appearance as a member of the group came in 1988.
