"I found out last minute that his concert was happening at the Santa Barbara Bull, and I was all alone. He played some songs that I was familiar with but then he sat down at the piano and played this song, which was 'Accidental Babies,'" Bell said. "I was so moved -- I was totally moved to tears."

'After the Fire's Gone'
