That's way cool. Thanks for the heads up!

@inkycatz: I know I'll be watching, and I'll probably donate, too. I wish I could afford to go there to help with the rebuilding, as I'm a retired house builder/remodeler.

@misterron: Call your local Red Cross and tell them if they are sending any teams you'd like to go. Inform them of your useful skills. Our local Red Cross pays transportation and housing to send skilled volunteer teams to disaster areas.

@moondrake: Thanks, but I did that last month, and I have heard nothing so far. I'm also talking to Habitat for Humanity to find other resources.

@misterron: Good for you! I hope that one of these agencies is able to make use of your willingness to help.

McCartney filling in for Cobain with Nirvana- that's must see tv

If you don't have cable or sat your only choice for OTA TV seems to be if you have a local Ion channel.

I can get it on WLNY 55.1 or ION 26.1

I can even see it live on the Patch, which is a super local news (as in each neighborhood has it's own version ) site, I think run by aol.
I didn't even know that was possible.

I really need to get in the car and go back to the neighborhoods in Queens and see what happened. Howard Beach, Hamilton Beach, Broad Channel and the Rockaways.

Watched (well, technically still watching as Paul McCartney is just coming on now) the whole thing; it was great. Loved it when Michael Stipe of REM came out and sung "Losing My Religion" with Chris Martin of Coldplay (who was the scheduled act). Eric Clapton was killer earlier as well. It's always amazing to see artists band together for charity events like this (especially with how the music "Industry" is these days, the non-artist corporate bean counters).

For anyone that missed it, I'm sure it'll be available (and probably rebroadcast somewhere). Don't forget to consider chipping in a few bucks as well if you can... 100% of donations are going to the charity since the corporate sponsors are picking up all the costs of the concert.

Ended up being a six hour show. Lots of cool collaborations. Paul McCartney singing with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear of Nirvana was pretty cool, but a shame it was only one song. It was also amusing that the guy with his finger on the mute button for swear words kept pressing it too late, so all the F-bombs and what-not got on air for the first few hours, amusingly always followed by a couple seconds of silence at the wrong moments.

Too bad KW had nothing else to wear except his sisters skirt !

@computiac: The show needed more Dave Grohl and less Kanye West. But yeah, a leather kilt, what the heck was that?

vote-for2vote-against

Agreed, a lot less KW !

His so called music did not fit in at all, NO reason for him to be there !

That's what it was ? WHY ?
