Will be thinking about the masses trying to get out of Irene’s path.
Cooder’s guitar says it all without a word spoken.

It took place Aug. 15-18. It was the Concert of ALL Concerts. And it only seemed like yesterday. There was no Violence nor Chaos at the venue in the 4 days. The only disruption there was, was trying to get there. For the conditions that took place with lack of water, food, & personal necessities.
