Bridge School concert 2010 with Pearl jam, Buffalo Springfield and many others...

A few days ago on Oct 23 & 24 many artists including Kris Kristofferson, Elton John & Leon Russel, Elvis Costello, Billy Idol, Pearl Jam, Neil Young among many others performed at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California for the 24th Annual Bridge School Benefit.
Two things were memorable:
1) It was Pearl Jam's 20th anniversary. Pearl Jam -- then billed as Mookie Blaylock (named for a former professional basketball player) -- played its first gig on Oct. 22, 1990 at the Seattle club Off Ramp.
2) Buffalo Springfield performed for the first time in over 40 years with original members Neil Young, Stephen Stills & Richie Furay with Joe Vitale and Rick Rosas sitting in for the late Dewey Martin and Bruce Palmer
