With the recent Live 8 concerts success, it is a good time to get the original Live Aid DVD for your collection.
The DVD's are great fun, especially seeing a younger U2 with Bono and Edges' hair. The lasting success of this great band are obvious when you watch them 20 years ago.
Queen - absolutely the show stopper and best performances, bar none. RIP Freddy Mercury
The Who - Watch "The Ox" on bass. Quietly standing there playing massive riffs. RIP John Entwhistle.
Black Sabbath - One song only :( Forgot that Tony, Geezer and Bill all looked the same back then. Ha. Still going strong today,
and Ozzy has been back in Sabbath since 1999.
U2 - See above
The Cars - Fun stuff, and again, the hair.
The Beach Boys - Good to see Brian Wilson singing with them
Ultravox - Midge Ure on "Vienna". Midge helped with Bob Geldof with Live Aid and with Live 8. Thanks Midge.
For you Guitar players:
Dire Straits - Mark Knofler on "Sultans of Swing"
The Destroyers - George Thorogood and Albert Collins on "Madison Blues"
U2 - Edge, master of the texture riff.
Black Sabbath - Toni Iommi, the original metal riff meister by which all others are compared. Still strong today.
Queen - Brian May. 'Nuff said.
There is some forgettable stuff on this four disc set, but overall its worth owning.
