Thirty years since Live Aid... and Queen ruled. Seriously.

Thirty years ago today, London and Philadelphia rocked the world, raising money for the starving, the Ethiopean famine, seen by an audience of more than a billion people around the world; Phil Collins nipping over the Atlantic in Concorde so that he could perform on both sides; rock heros from Status Quo to Bruce Springsteen to David Bowie and what seemed like every rock star playing their greatest hits. Wembley, in London, and JFK stadium in Philly, full to the brim with rock fans. And... Queen ruled it. Hands down. IMHO, but still... they did.

BBC documentary above. If you never saw the full concert, (maybe you were not even born yet?), that crazy full day-and-might of music, there is a DVD set available but it is now pretty expensive.

Do you remember where you were when Live Aid happened?

Did you cry when you saw this? Will you still cry, still care, today? 

You can't go on, thinking nothing's wrong...
