Live aid scrapbook [Pre-blog]

The Iconic cover of Smash Hits magazine, the bi weekly we all read with Bob Geldof one of two its main movers Midge Ure of Ultravox being the other at the podium  in Wembley, England.

We watched and listened to the show coming from Wembley and Philadelphia, USA to the early hours of the morning seeing some amazing performances, phoning in money to help the starving in Ethiopia.
Trying to stay awake, operating our Betamax VCR, punching the controls on my Tandberg stereo open reel deck and a cassette deck simultaneously was a co-ordination challenge but it was worth it.

Favourite acts performances:
Queen "Global jukebox"
Bryan Adams in Philly
Tom Petty
Duran Duran and Powerstation
Thompson Twins with Madonna
Elton John
Phil Collins.
