Did anyone watch the music tribute Friday night?

  1. I loved it. I hope they will make the songs into a CD and give the proceeds to the fund for the victims families.

    The songs that really moved me were Bruce "City in Ruins" I have no idea if that was the real title, but it was so moving. Also loved the song by Sting. Loved Dave Matthews, and Faith Hill's song. And never really listened to the Dixie Chicks before, that chick can wail! I have to get one of their CD's. They sing country music the way my grandparents used to like it, brought back great memories.

    Interesting twist to have Celene Dion, a French Canadian, sing God Bless America...My Home Sweet Home. Or, is she actually an American citizen? Anyway, I don't care, she has a phenomenal voice, and she sang the song so beautifully, move over Kate Smith I'm afraid!

    Also loved Neil Young singing Lennon's Imagine.

    Anyway, did anyone else watch? Like it? Hate it? Why?

    I thought it was great, it's amazing how songs written 20-30 years ago are still relavant. Neil Young was awesome as was Fred Durst and was is Jonny reznik? Sorry don't care for Celene Dion, Dixie Chics were kinda cool. Stevie Wonder was great.

    I got to see it; but my daughter was home from college this weekend and jabbered through most of it-- she did tell me who some of the younger musicians were that I didn't recognize, and I had to tell her who some of the older ones were. What I did hear was pretty awesome.

    I thought it was very good...Goldie was sitting next to Kurt Russell, her hubby! I also think they need to make a CD...I'm sure they will!

    I missed Bruce and Stevie. Neil Young must be the only musician to do justice to Lennon's "Imagine". Question for Kewl et al: Who were the four guys doing the acoustic number? One of the lead singers had a black cap on, no guitar, the others had guitars and did back up vocals. It was impressive. I would love to have the video of the show. All those stars answering the phones- what a rush.

    Black cap with no hat was Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit, Jobnny Reznek from the Goo Goo Dolls was sitting next to him, not sure who theo other 2 were, i didn't see them that much.

    Although not originally listed in the billing, I knew this thing had Eddie Vedder/ Pearl Jam written all over it. Was real glad to see him (Eddie), but I was really fantasizing about seeing him play "I Am Patriot", that would have killed me. Interesting that the song he performed, "The Long Road", he originally did c/ a Muslim by the name of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan for the Dead Man Walking soundtrack. Nusrat was the Indian version of Elvis who died a few years ago. I beleive he had an MI. Yeah, I'd like to see a CD of this thing. And wow to Neil!

    I was knocked out by Neil Young doing "Imagine" Thought I recognized the piece from the Dead Man Walking soundtrack by Eddie Vedder-very haunting music...My personal fave has always been Tom Petty-and "I won't back down" has been my theme song-and sounds now as if it were written for the occassion last week..very fitting...."You can stand me up at the Gates of Hell but I won't back down"

    I thought the Limp Bizkit/Goo Goo Dolls thing was the best. I had no idea who they were but was very moved.

    I thought the song resounded of Pink Floyd, and a friend of mine stated that it was a Floyd. Any one know? It was moving.
