Since our news about Saturday night's private show undertaken by Roger Waters and friends in the Hamptons, New York, as part of the Huggy Bear Benefit, the Brain Damage news machine has been working overtime to find out more information on this show for you.

It was reported by the sole reporter to breach the tight security (she had an invite!), Joan Jedell, that the show, starring Don Henley, Roger and Stevie Nicks, had Henley bringing down the house "with such tunes as 'Witchy Woman' and 'Hotel California,' paired up with Nicks for a rendition of 'Leather and Lace,' and later joined Waters to sing songs off 'The Wall' album."

We now know that the two tracks that Roger played, on acoustic guitar, were Comfortably Numb and Mother. This information comes courtesy of Roger's manager, Mark Fenwick.

Jedell, who presents Hamptons news Saturday mornings on 77-WABC Radio, has let us know that she will be presenting a full review of the event in this coming weekend's show. WABC can be found at 770hz AM, and also through live streaming on the internet, at The report is scheduled to air at around 9.10am (EST), which is around 1.10pm GMT for people in other time zones. There will also be a printed review in the next issue of The Hampton Sheet periodical.

Our thanks to Don at Huggy Bears, Joan Jedell, Mark Fenwick, Elliot and Phil.
