Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi blew minds of New Jersey-ians. R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe came out of retirement. Eddie Vedder joined Roger Waters for a Pink Floyd classic. Kanye West wore a kilt – which soon got it’s own Twitter handle (and over 1,000 followers!). Jay-Z was a no-show. And, apparently, Paul McCartney has joined a new band… with the surviving members of Nirvana. It all was part of 12.12.12 The Concert For Sandy Relief benefitting the Robin Hood Foundation.
With a little help from musical pals like The Boss, Hurricane Sandy telethon “Coming Together” raised $23 million for relief efforts via the American Red Cross.
The former Beatle and Motown Records founder Berry Gordy are teaming up to raise money to help conserve and honor a famous piece of Motown’s history.
