Justin: Yeah I’ve talked to my family and all my friends and everybody, everybody I’ve talked there hasn’t been one person who hasn’t known or been affected by what’s going on. I mean I know someone who worked close to us on our crew was on one of those plays.
Carson: Yeah, Joey told us.
Justin: And it just hit home with so many different people and, you know, I feel saddened and I get a bit of anxiety about it lately just because our unity and our spirituality has been definitely challenged as humans and I’m hearin’ all these wonderful things about people goin’ down and volunteering and giving blood and the fact they already have too much of it and it puts a smile on my face and i think there have tests that have been put before us and I think we are passin’ ’em but, i mean, it’s tough. Like everybody said it is just tough and i think we should all, like John just said, show a sense of morale try to keep this whole way of life goin’.

Carson: Joey from *NSYNC, are you in Florida?
Carson: How are you holdin’ up?
Joey: It was quite a shocker for me I mean comin’ from a different perspective. I actually was waken up and my mom called my phone like, hey, a plane just crashed into the World Trade Center. I’m like in disbelief totally, ran downstairs and turned on the TV and just before I left town that’s when the second plane hit in the other building it was just like — such devastation, I tried call from miss perspective in the being able to do anything right away trying to call some of my friends that were, working around there and one of our security guard’s sister was in the building and thank goodness she actually got out. She had a bunch of third degree burns.
Kurt: What do you feel about this now, having had a couple days to think about it, do you feel grief , anger.
Joey: Still jumbled like the perspective ever being. We will try to help out as much as we can I know in Florida people are giving blood and tryin’ to help out and be patriotic as well and it is just still really hasn’t sunk in because you see it on T.V., Like you say, it looks like a someone on computer did it and to not be able to be there and to really see it, it is just — it’s just an odd feeling, a very scary feeling because you always try to picture what everybody else is going through and watching on TV and the rest of the people trying to find the people through the rubble and everything it is just devastating.
Carson: Did you lose a crew member in this?
Joey: Yes. One of the crew members that worked one of the stages, he actually lives — was in one of the planes that crashed.
Carson: Very sorry to hear that.

Kurt: Are you familiar with that part of town? No doubt you’ve been down there.
Joey: A bunch of times, pretty familiar. I think — I can’t, for me I can’t picture how, you know, obviously it is almost a whole block that’s been completely destroyed and then some.
Carson: I think a popular notion now, joey is everybody is having a real sense of re-prioritizing their own lives, I know I am personally a lot 6 people are saying you know this is a lesson not to sweat the small stuff if you will. Where does it stand for the world’s biggest pop group what are the thoughts of *NSYNC and music?
Joey: The first thing we thought of obviously what can we did to help, that’s the first thing everybody thinks. We have a lot of [note: jumbled here] The children, a the there of the monies we can probably donate and thinkin’ of maybe doing a concert and stuff like that although is probably, hopefully, you know, gonna be scheduled, as soon as possible but then, again, everybody is on such precautious thing as far as flying, we don’t know exactly when that will take place.
Carson: We appreciate you callin’ Joey. Again our best to the guys sorry for your loss and talk to you soon.
Joey: Thank you. My best to you, too.
