I've always been a big fan of Neil Young, both acoustic and electric (Rust Never Sleeps).
My favorite acoustic performance, though, has to be Bon Jovi and Sambora on the steps of a New York fire station doing an acoustic version of
"America the Beautiful" just before the NFL returned to action with the NY Giants game two Sundays after 9/11. It was the most poignant, haunting,
rendition of the song I have ever heard. Sambora was playing a dual neck acoustic guitar and Bon Jovi just sang it from the heart. I was in the
hospital with a spinal tap in, and it made me forget all about everything but the moment as they performed.
I wish I could find a video of it to post. I've looked, but haven't found anything. Anybody else know what I'm talking about? I think it was
broadcast on NBC.
