Live 8 is ON!!! Check your local listings. MTV is doing most of the domestic coverage in the States. I just downloaded Macca and U2 performing Sgt. Pepper. Wow. I've got chills.
I can remember where I was watching the first Live Aid: the Hotel Nikko in Paris. My first trip overseas. My Mom and I had spent the day traipsing around the Left Bank. Since the broadcast was in French it took us a little while to figure out what was on TV. I remember saying to my Mom, look at all these famous people performing. Then, I realized it was Live Aid (having bought the Charity single) and stayed up to watch the last 2 hours or so.
That was July 13, 1985. Almost 20 years ago. How appropriate that the first official Live 8 download was Macca's Beatle classic ("It was 20 years ago today..."). The track is amazing, of course. A must for McCartney or U2 fans, what are you waiting for?
The back kept me up most of the night, but I've got the adrenaline rushing. Jigga Man is on right now!
Love, Power, Peace
