Says McCartney isn't going to ape Cobain, but it will still be cool to see Noveselic and Grohl jam together again.

This should be cool. Also a pretty cool lineup for the event overall, although I could do without Kanye West. I saw it would be streamed online, are any tv stations picking it up?

Nevermind, it looks like it's on a bunch of stations. Silly me!

Two acts in and this has already been awesome. Roger Waters with some Eddie Vedder action is excellent. 69 years old, Roger has sounded great.

The whole thing was pretty great. Bruce opened well and Roger Waters and Vedder on Comfortably Numb was fantastic. Adam Sandler was funny again for the first time in years. Kanye was better than I anticipated. The McCartney/Nirvana song was solid and Grohl once again looked at home behind the drums. Too much Billy Joel and Bon Jovi blows, but otherwise that was a fun evening.

Forgot about mentioning The Who. Daltrey and Townshend atoned for the terrible Super Bowl performance a couple years ago. Piping Moon back in was good fun too.

That was great...I'm not a big Billy joel guy, but thought he was really good.

REM is my all time favorite, so Stipey was a pleasant surprise. He looks, in a word, "healthy".

AKA: Fat.

I wasn't sure how interested I would be, so I spent most of the night switching between the concert and streamed episodes of The West Wing. Enjoyed most of what I saw, though.

LOL, I commented that he might have given up his vegan lifestyle.

Was still good to see them.

Weird that the Stones got two songs while opening for Alicia Keys.

Roger Daltry should keep his shirt on.

Great to see him, and Chris Martin (though I don't love Coldplay) is a terrific performer for sure.

REM will do a reunion tour in a few years I'm sure. I saw a spolier list online somewhere yesterday, and there was no mention of Stipe or anoyne playing with Martin for that matter.

Agree on the Stones, also "I was born in a crossfire hurricane, and I howled at my Ma in the driving rain"..Um, what? Wrong benefit for Jumpin Jack Flash, boys.

I'm old so I'm not as familiar with Alicia Keys' music, but she's beautiful and can really belt it out. I was impressed.

Got this on the DVR, haven't watched yet. Looking forward to it.

The rest of the Stones, sure, are old as crap and look like hell, but Mick still rocks and for a guy pushing 70 what he does at shows is pretty damn impressive. And despite looking like death, Keith can still rock out those open G tuned chords with the few remaining marbles he's got rolling around in his head.

I thought they sounded pretty good, too. The way Mick is able to dance around the stage, at his age, is really impressive. Hell, it would be relatively impressive if he were 20 years younger.

Here's the new song, 'Cut Me Some Slack', written by the Nirvana guys and Paul McCartney. I think it's got a pretty good feel to it. If they would release an album together, it would have a lot of potential IMO.
