What I would have given

to have seen the Talking Heads play together at CBGB's...

Anthony Keidis also drew chuckles with the intro to his speech inducting the Talking Heads. "They told me this function was going to be at CBGB's this year, to weed out some of the posers," he said. "Eddie Vedder, wherever you are, you are a genius. The Ramones' songs may be two-minutes long, but that speech was not. It was actually a very short speech, just spoken very slowly."

Kiedis' Talking Heads speech was a bit long-winded, and plenty reverent. "I just want them to know what a beautiful impact they've had on this world," he said of the band. "They left this world a better place as a band they did things as beautiful and meaningful as a Nobel scientist or a saint or any form of God that we believe in."

After a lengthy acceptance from bassist Tina Weymouth and comments from the rest of the band, the Heads took the stage together for the first time in more than a decade, dusting off three favorites: "Psycho Killer," "Burning Down the House" and "Live During Wartime." They also hung around for the buggy after-show jam that began with a run through "Take Me to the River," featuring David Byrne, Darlene Love and Sam Moore singing, with the rest of the Heads joined by Hayes and Cropper.

Although, this is the most unfortunate and telling thing I've heard in a while. Thank Jewel for a head full of air, which in this case has done plenty of talking and just needs to shut up:

Rob Thomas and Jewel fumbled on a cover of George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun," in which the latter inexcusably altered the "doo doo doo doo"'s to "la la la la"'s.found here
