Listen to Rush and Aerosmith Recalling 9/11 on Chop Shop Radio Special
Much of the country will spend today remembering the many innocent people who lost their lives as a result of the 9/11 tragedies. At the bottom of this page, you can listen to a special two hour tribute courtesy of the syndicated radio program The Chop Shop Guitar Show. The show, which also ran on the show’s affiliate stations, features personal remembrances from a number of classic rock artists who found their lives forever altered by the events.
Host Steve Black is joined by Geddy Lee of Rush, Joe Perry of Aerosmith, guitarist Steve Vai, members of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and several others who share their stories, surrounded by the music that helped to bring everyone together as our country worked to move forward.
Geddy Lee recalls the moment when he learned about the attacks: “I was in Toronto and somebody found me and told me to turn on the television and of course I sat there for the next two hours just completely stunned and appalled by what I was watching.”
He went on to say, “My reaction was much the same as any normal human being, I was sickened by it and it had a profound effect on the entire world I think and life has really not been the same since that day. “
Donations can still be made to the ongoing relief fund that was established to benefit both survivors and the families of the victims of 9/11.
