and i could honestly say that it's an event like no other. seeing random artists jam with the legendary is a once in a lifetime experience. this is why i need to go this year!! not to mention this is probably one of their last shows in so cal in a while cause of the jimmy fallon gig.

some highlights:
-travis barker's drum off with questo
-corinne bailey rae doing "if you want me to stay" by sly
-anita effing baker
-other artists like doug e fresh, mc lyte, kweli, seal, bilal, patrick stump,

prince was there? wtf?

... 2006! Of each I attended, there was an incredible magic that night, CLOSELY followed by 2005! That was a great year for me PERIOD! 2008 was just HECTIC, but the show itself was great too! Plenty going on to 'preoccupy' you from the stage too (though I didn't stay long). Didn't make it to the 2007 one (shooting stuff on the east coast), but I'm sure it was stellar.

That's my two cents.

Holla.

182341, was 2006 with Wendy and Lisa?

the years are running together, but if it was, I SO agree. That was THE best. Snoop, yo yo, Warren G all performed. Big Daddy Kane made me shed a slight tear that night.

Went to all 3. 2006 was the best in my opinion but all of them have been great and memorable.
