Paul McCartney teams with Nirvana survivors for new song and Michael Stipe duets with Chris Martin on "Losing My Religion" as perhaps the greatest concert lineup of the new century comes together to help victims of the storm of the century

The only thing I didn't like about this event is that it was sponsored by JP Morgan's Chase Bank. Support your local Credit Union!

I hope that this was helpful to the victims of hurricane Sandy. Thank you.

I loved this concert! I was dancing with my cat! I agree with Vincenzo - the sponsors were questionable, but to see them do something beneficial for a change is refreshing! Hope I get some sleep tonight! :)

Fantastic concert, although our broadcast got cut off early:(.

Surely it raised a lot of money for recovery.

Noted, Thank you Cal.

I missed it because it wasn't being advertised until the last second. Which network did it come on?

A reunion of ancient british rockers who thought they were still 18! Some good acts and some horrible. Adam Sandler had the best single with his version of Allelulia that was tailored to Sandy. Many of the rest were tailored only to their egos.

This was really excellent, with a good balance between Sandy footage and appeals for help, and the concert. The music was so impressive. I watched the whole thing, and loved it. McCartney KILLED!

Ffor the record, Bruce and BonJovi rocked the house, though I really missed Clarence Clemons. Great collection of rock royalty.

I enjoyed this concert and the aging rockers....esp. The Who. Great set! I also loved the different combinations of artists playing together. This was on a multitude channels as well as the internet. It was suppose to last 4-1/2 hrs. but went nearly 6. The Nirvana reunion was a real pleasure...esp. Dave Grohl drumming--powerful. Although my admiration of McCartney has dwindled over the years, I still hoped for some magic--but was disappointed. They also appeared and played the song again on SNL.

I loved the concert, its spirit, and its purpose. One thing proved to be wrong: a rolling stone DOES gather moss. No Bon Jovi-esque good looks in that group! I thought the guitar player died during the first song. At one point he walked over to the drummer, with his back to the audience, and stood there for several minutes without moving a muscle. Mick needs to share some of that energy of his. Ever wonder what these guys would be doing if they weren't famous...
