Another great example of bands pulling together in support of people who so clearly need it.

Thinking the same thing, Jimbo.

Like the implausible 1-off 2005 reunion of Pink Floyd for LIVE8 with Roger Waters joining the band on stage for the first time since 1981 or Led Zeppelin's incredible reunion for The Ahmet Ertegun Foundation at 02 Arena in London, so should Ric Okasek rejoin The Cars, even if it's just this once, for One Fund Boston, certainly a cause as equally important as the others mentioned above.

not a fan of new kids on the block or a few others on there. but it shows the true respect of musicians coming together for a great cause. It shows you, that people still care, and that is what is important.
