July 2, 2005 Philadelphia There was no surprise of the heart. Somewhere between hundreds of thousands and a million and a half people... all with a good thought in mind and an open heart... feels good. That's what I went to see. That's what I got. However, I was pleasantly surprised by some bands that I had never respected. Toby Keith -- what is that country? Whaterver it is, sounded good. And, the cover of Phil Collins', Another Day In Paradise hit the spot. Def Leppard -- rocked. Maroon 5 -- kicked butt on a cover of Neil Young's, Keep On Rockin' In The Free World. Linkin Park -- blew the crowd away... I lost sight of them when the port-a-pots became grandstands. There was no surprise with Stevie Wonder. I'd always imagined he was a special presence. And, he is. Higher Ground elevated the masses and knocked the funk out of 'em.
