Despite the unfortunate historic events connotated with this incredible music event, during which I was just a naive 8th grader, this concert introduced me to some great music that still continues to inspire me today. After flicking through the TV channels until I came up to the first thing I saw on VH1, it was the Who doing Baba O' Riley at this concert. This was pretty much my very first conscious exposure to rock and roll, and what an amazing revelation it was! The Who saved this young impresionable mind from the attractive grip of banal MTV culture. I now have almost every Who CD and follow by my personal creed that the Who is the greatest rock and roll band in the world. I'm greatly thankful that such a phenomenal band was there to lighten the spirits of all those New Yorkers during those tough times with the healing power of Rawk and Roll! Oh yeah, and Bowie performs Heroes, one of the best songs he ever wrote, and it had an extra special impact on the audience that night.
