The 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit is over and music lovers are finding themselves thoroughly rocked a day later. The show raised quite a few funds for those in need in the aftermath of the natural disaster while keeping audiences entertained with some great performances and surprising collaborations. As expected, there’s been an outpouring of response on Twitter.

Some of the comments come from the rockers that were directly involved in the show, like Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones, with each commenting on the show and directing fans where to donate. Meanwhile, others that weren’t part of the event, like Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler, KissGene Simmons, Slash and Flea weighed in with commentary and urging their fans to donate as well.
