I was deeply honored to play in the house band the other night for a benefit for the Tibet House at Carnegie Hall. Guest performers included Iggy Pop, Sharon Jones, Tibetan singer Dechen Shak-Dagsay, Basia Barut, the Scorchio String Quartet and Gogol Bordello. The House band included long time members of the Patti Smith Band: Tony Shanahan on bass, Jack Petruzzelli and Lenny Kaye on guitars, and Andy Burton from the John Mayer Band on piano and keyboards. I had an amazing time rehearsing and collaborating with each of these artists.
Here is a brief article in Rolling Stone magazine about the event with some video:
and here are a few photos with the band and Sharon Jones, Eugene Hutz from Gogol Bordello and Iggy Pop!
