There's a LOT of empty seats in there! Also, has Bowie's voice always been this "weak", or is it just a sign of his age?

i saw the bowie performance. damn, he looks good for a guy who's like 62. i'm sure at that age, his voice will tend to fade.

but the song (was it the opening song?) where he sat crosslegged on the stage with the little keyboard was really nice. i wouldn't think so but it turned out well.

Anybody know if there's a chance VH1 is going to show this again? Watched part of it but missed the majority of it so was just curious. Thanks.

Wow - what a lot of old guys.

The highlight for me was definitely The Who. Though I thought Townshend's guitar was not loud enough for most of it. Buddy Guy was cool. I was happy to see Keith Richards. McCartney was interesting. I was surprised by his young band. The unexpected Clinton cameo in the Seinfeld piece was very funny.

I could only watch bits & pieces. What did everyone else think? Did you enjoy Mike's Irish ass?

This is VH1, so yes it will most likely be aired again! Probably as a shorter version.

Saw most of it. Too bad they were having technical difficulties. Nick(of BSB)'s mic wasn't working in their acapella of "All I have to give" and Melissa Etheridge's mic cut out for about 2 mins in the middle of "Come to my Window". Good thing she knew how to carry it.

It wasn't stand up. It was him going around new york talking about all the great things about new york, but with a twist. For example, he went up to a hot dog stand and said "there are hot dogs on every corner" then he took a hot dog and started running and said "they're free...free pretzels too" and he took a pretzel. A few site gags too. It was funny.

The part with Clinton had to do with Harlem...I think Clinton said "what's up?" to the camera.

Yeah the Seinfeld was just too funny!
He'd say like the "taxicab drivers are nice"
"they'll let you steer the wheel" and they'd show him on the taxicaber's lap.

"And there are lots of fun recreation and nice people"
Then shows him on a b-ball court getting run over by everyone and pushed!

Hillary Clinton introduced the clip, and she was getting BOOED the whole time talking. Loudly as well, must of been tough.

Then Bill took stage after the clip and the people were loving him.

The NY sports guys got a HUGE response, especially Joe Torre.

I also thought Adam Sandler's "Opera Man" was pretty funny.

It's like they "almost" got there $5,000 a ticket worth!?

I LOVE Howard Stern, and was pretty cool he showed up, but some of his "jokes" didn't go over well.

Boy that was a LONG concert from 7:30 - 12:45!

Didn't even know it was on until I found it clicking through the channels. There wasn't much left, but I really enjoyed it.

I loved the Scorsese film clip, and IMHO The Who ROCKED. Pete Townsend played like he was 20 years younger. And who didn't cry when they showed the twin towers pictures in the background?
