    We were at a friends stag party that day and through the night.

    They had the concert on a big screen in the house, people would filter in and out checking out bands throughout the day. It was a good time.

    Freddie knew how to put on a show, his rapport with the audience was something else -- they really did love him, shame really, little did he know that he would be very sick very soon.

    There were a lot of great acts during those two shows, London and Philadelphia, i remember Phil Collins started in London and ended up playing into the night in Philadelphia, cool stuff.

    Probably the greatest voice in rock history. Unreal range

    saddest thing of all about Live Aid was that it changed absolutely nothing. 26 years later and nothing has changed in Africa; and anything its worse.

    Saw Queen in 1980....simply Fantastic.

    Mercury has few peers.
