Sunday night VH! is replaying one of the concerts produced after 9/11. Two concert specials were produced to fund raise for firefighters and response workers back then...and Rolling Stone called them one of the 50 moments that changed rock and roll. I'v\ll be watching this rebroadcast tomorrow night. I watched both of these concerts at the time and they were incredible. I remember this one especially for the part where firefighters and cops were in the front row and singing along to The Who. The Who's performance in this concert is absolutely stunning. A little other detail from these concerts is Billy Joel. I was never a fan of billy Joel, but when he sang New York State of Mind I got a new appreciation for at least that one song...it was so touching and took on such a new meaning I had chllls down my back. Of course the most emotional moment of these concerts was from the first one (A Tribute To Heroes aired on Sept 21) with Neil Young performing John Lennons' Imagine. OUCH. I'm making sure to blog today because most tv networks have programming dedicated to the 10th anniversary of 9/11 tomorrow....and I'll be watching as many as I can.
