The other night I was surfing the web when I came across this very special clip from YouTube. It is of Ian Hunter, the legendary singer and guitarist from Mott The Hoople, and a song he wrote a few years ago called "Twisted Steel." It is a tribute to the 9/11 victims, and Ian and myself both have something in common regarding it.
Ian also knew my friend Joyce, because he is married to her cousin.
The video is a poignant tribute to her and all the victims. It is mostly film clips of the aftermath of the worst day in our history, and lasts just under three minutes. Ian also dedicates the song to Joyce every time he plays it live. I saw it for the first time the other night, and I thought I'd share it with all of you.
Nice job Mr. Hunter. I'm sure you've made Joyce proud.
