    Hey man... it was really cool. I played with Simon, Kenny Aronoff and Phil Soussan. We did Smell yourself, Tears of my own Shawn(!) (I forgot the words hahaha...) and Manic depression. We had a blast and it was great to see old and new friends. Guns 'n' Roses played with the guys from Buckcherry and Cypress Hill and Steven Tyler from Aerosmith. Tyler grabbed me after our set and said alot of nice things to me and it meant a lot as the cat is a fuckin legend! It was great to see Slash, Matt and Duff again. They played great. Ronnie Montrose played... Randy would heve been proud, I am sure he was there in spirit.

    - By Arend, Sep 14, 2001 12:00 AM
    On September 14th the members and management of Toto came out with a statement for their fans on toto99.com: "As of today, we are planning on doing the shows this weekend but it has been very difficult here. Everyone is very somber and heavy of heart. We hope that people will come out to the shows and gather together rather than stay at home watching the grim news on television. Everyone here is devastated, sad and angry and wondering what will happen in the future. Our country has not seen aggressive attacks on our own soil in many years and now we are suffering the hand of a faceless enemy. Thousands of innocent lives have ended. We are thankful for the love and support from our European brothers and many others around the world. The basic feeling here is that we cannot allow terrorists to ruin our lives and keep us from living normally. Therefore, although difficult, we will play our shows this weekend and try to spread a bit of cheer to an extremely saddened community."
