If you are not watching the 12/12/12 Sandy relief concert, my goodness you are missing out. Bruce, the Who, the Stones, Floyd. I’m just so fucking nostalgic right now. When I was 14 and 15, mom and dad had a Chevy Caprice Classic diesel wagon, the kind that had a rear seat facing backwards. I was such an obnoxious prick that I sat in the back seat facing backwards (and I have a sneaking suspicion that dad used to position the luggage so it would fall on me a lot). While back there on our long rides to our lake house at Middle Sebago in Maine or to the beach at Bethany Beach in Delaware, I would sit in the back and use my Sony Walkman and listen to the Stones, Floyd, the Who, or, in other words, all the bands playing tonight. The only thing missing was a little Queen, some Yes, and some Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
Watch the show. It’s just the best live music benefit I have seen in a while, and give if you can by calling 1-855-465-4357 or going to http://www.121212concert.org.
And my goodness, Alicia Keys is so fucking smoking hot she makes me sweat.
