Food for the artists for this event all came from Finger Lakes and Southern Tier (NY) farms. Great lineup all around, including Counting Crows, Mellancamp and Dave. What is it about Derek Trucks? Will this dude look 18 for the rest of his life? What's his secret? Thanks for the coverage on this.

Sounds effing amazing, especially Neil and the ABB. It would be worth it just for those two and Willie. And for one of the best causes imaginable, nonetheless.

great review.. even managed to say nice things about john cougar - not sure how he squeezed a later set than ABB, but whatev. great pics as well. miles - dave and tim live is way better than dmb live. this reviewer did a great job relaying the intricacies of reynolds' playing.

I must disagree with a few of your points USC. Counting Crows best song is "Murder of One" off of their first album. You can easilty find amazing acoustic liver versions they have done. And although Duritz is so cheesy he bleeds Velvetta he is not a bad songwriter, not great but not bad. The fact that they haven't done much other than a few covers since the late 90's and he's a bloated version of himself it makes it kinda sad and funny to watch.

What's with the lack of love for Neil and Willie? Although you know enough to be a fan of Mirror Ball I think you you give a listen to some other newer Neil. And live he is still amazingly poignant and heartfelt. Willie is the man. Musically he has never been either Cash or Monroe's equal but how many people are? Please don't get me started on JCM. I've been to his hometown and its not that small. He's a fraud. One OK album when Reagan was in office and we have to put up with that damn Chevy commercial incessantly 20 years late. UGHHHH!!!

In response to Trojans comments. Yeah, I can see where you may not want to see the counting crows live, however lets take a trip back to the 90's. Popular music even just a decade ago was so much better than popular music today. Sure, the Counting Crows may not be spectacular, but I would still credit them for being talented. I guess what I'm trying to say is I would rather turn on my radio and hear the counting crows than fallout boy. What was considered pop in the 90's (especially early 90's) was not bad. Even though our nation's (as a whole) taste for music is going down the shitter, it is refreshing to see a band like the counting crows keeping at it. As for your other comments, neil young rules, so yeah, that comment sucked.

In response to NY not putting out anything decent since the 70's, both Harvest Moon and Greendale were great

i love it when a guy whose favorite artists include amy winehouse and jack johnson insult living legends like willie nelson. i mean come on trojan, your old screen name is kellerhead. willie has more soul in his pinky finger than all the tattoos, and heroin in winehouses body or stale gimmicks in keller's loopy bag of tricks.

overall, great review, no mention of dave and tim performing "dreaming tree" for the first time ever, which was quite the treat

trojans4life--get real buddy. Willie had to sell most of those songs early on in his career to feed himself and his family. you are truly an ass for banging on him about that.

good review except for the comment about Trucks' Band being an up-and-comer. they have pretty well arrived imho.

Trojanboy, you're an idiot. Willie is the man. i can name a lot more than 3, here we go: "Family Bible", "Hello Walls", "Always on My Mind", "Night Life", "Funny How Time Slips Away", "Crazy", "Good Hearted Woman", "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain", "If You've Got the Money, I've Got the Time", "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys", "Me and Paul", "Whiskey River" and of course "Beer for my Horses". He also had something to do with a lil' album called "Wanted: The Outlaws", country music's first platinum album and was at one time the best seller of all time, not sure if it still is. So, stop being such a prick and have a little respect.

I bet USC is an awesome, genius musician in his own right, since he feels he can look down on Willie Nelson and Neil Young. I want to attend his induction into the rock and roll hall of fame. Where is your next gig? In your basement?
