LIVE AID - 25 Years Ago Today

The four disc ultimate collection of Bob Geldof's original
Live Aid concert on 13 July 2005 packs in all of the magic of this day. If you can overlook the ample mullets, white trousers and surprisingly bad stage design, you'll be entertained for 10 hours by 63 groups and artists who got together to raise money for starving people in Africa, at Wembley Arena and simultaneously in the USA. They include everyone from Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Queen, Sting, Elton John, The Who, Bryan Ferry, Pretenders, George Michael, Style Council, Duran Duran Ultravox, Judas Priest, and David Bowie, to Madonna, U2, Eric Clapton, Bryan Adams, Status Quo, Tom Petty, Sade, Simple Minds, Spandau Ballet, Patti Labelle, and Run DMC, plus a truckload more. With the situation hardly changed, the sad irony is that no matter how much money or food you send, if the leaders remain corrupt and pandemic's like AIDS cannot be curbed, should you give up, or still try whatever you can regardless?
