Who Will Win The GRAMMY For Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package?
Many live performances from the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at NYC’s Madison Square Garden are now available as a digital album and eventually a physical album, Columbia Records has announced. The Robin Hood Relief […]
The Rolling Stones lined up a bunch of big-name guests for their “One More Shot” pay-per-view concert on Saturday night, ranging from twenty-something superstar Lady Gaga to sixty-something legend Bruce Springsteen. But the biggest reaction from the crowd went to the guest with the least celebrity power: the band’s former guitar player Mick Taylor.
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.

“Yeah, we got the old band back together,” Van Zandt tells us. “Me and David Chase and James Gandolfini.”

Dubbed “The Concert For Sandy Relief,” the show, which takes place at Madison Square Garden, will raise money to help provide assistance to the millions of people throughout the tri-state area who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Hey, it’s an infinitely better idea than the time they offered a phone dial-in to listen to their A Bigger Bang European Tour in 2006.
Mary J. Blige and Gary Clark Jr. will lend the Stones a hand at their Brooklyn show.
