During all of the coverage of the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy along the eastern seaboard, former Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart was watching NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams. "He had [Jon] Bon Jovi on and they were talking about the Jersey Shore. And Brian, you could see it in his eyes, and Bon Jovi, it was loss of a sense of place. It was much more than just buildings and water and boardwalks," Hart tells Rolling Stone. "And it really touched me, the loss for all these people, their memories and where they grew up. It was just a tragedy."
