here’s what he had to say about the performance that you will watch on friday morning (we’ll talk about how sad i am not to be in nyc right now when he’s there for a WEEK at a later date):
“I am writing with a little ray of good news. I am in NYC right now working with my band, World Leader Pretend. On September 29 and 30, we will be performing live and taking part in the “Make a Difference Today” program, the hurricane relief initiative from NBC News’ Today Show, WMG and Habitat for Humanity International. We will be helping build homes at Rockefeller Plaza to be delivered to families affected by Hurricane Katrina. We will also be performing live at Rockefeller Plaza on the following days: – Thursday, Sept. 29: performance @ Noon at Rockefeller Plaza – Friday, Sept. 30: interview and performance @ 8:30 a.m. on NBC’s Today show with Katie Couric. Feels good to be doing our part in helping, for a while there I just felt so helpless not being able to go down and help out my hometowns of Slidell [LA] and New Orleans. The good news is, power is restored, in Slidell and New Orleans finally, and I will be going down on [date deleted so the man can have some rest] to do more helping and rebuilding. all for a good cause. check it yo.”
so tune in or get to rockefeller plaza.
