Rock Hall Concert 1 in Big Apple

Hits were scarce Thursday night (10/29) at Yankee Stadium, where AJ Burnett edged out Pedro Martinez and the Phillys in game 2 of the World Series.  Not so in midtown, where an all star lineup delivered a barrage of them at the first of two  Rock Hall Of Fame 25th anniversary shows at Madison Square Garden. Bonnie Raitt & James Taylor joined Crosby Stills & Nash on Teach Your Children. Simon & Garfunkel sounded great (especially for two guys who hate to miss a Yankee post season game). Stevie Wonder and Sting traded vocals on Roxanne. Jeff Beck, pinch hitting for Eric Clapton (story), was awesome. It was around midnight when Springsteen tore things up with Sam Moore on Soul Man and Hold On. I'm Coming before being also joined by John Fogerty and then, unannounced guest, Billy Joel.  And don't forget, it's a double header!
