I believe U2 are opening because they need to fly back to Vienna to continue their tour with a concert the same evening.

Does anyone know why Bob wanted Statusquo to open the Live Aid in 1985?


Thanks

Although they are known as blues rocking headbangers who play great guitar, I think in my intuition that it has something to do with their first hit "Pictures of Matchstick Men" and that perhaps Sir Bob is haunted by the faces of starving Africans, in his conscience he cannot forget them.

The first global simocast rock event?  Why "Rockin' All Over The World" of course.  Emblematic classic!


I used to love Quo's music, and Rod Stewart & The Faces.


Oh, and SLAAAAAADE!!!

I never listen to my old LPs any more, not for about 15 years now.  I only bought a few of the old rock LPs on CD and then I just got bored with the music.  I started listening to jazz (the really old stuff from the 1920s and 1930s), classical (Beethoven, Mozart, Handel, Hayden, that sort of thing), some folk music and odds and ends like Cajun and Tex-Mex.  Then I heard my one and only Congolese LP in wonderful quadraphonic surround-a-sound - with guitars intertwining everywhere and brass putting in punches - and I was hooked on African music (forget Osibisa - YUK!). Now, a couple of years later and some thousand pounds lighter, I've amassed a collection that I just can't get enough of - there aren't enough hours in the day!  Still have fond memories of the times I spent head-banging to the Quo though!

I think that Ronnie James Dio should open with the song "Rainbow in the Dark", but then suddenly break into "Seasons in the Sun".

I give respect where respect is due not just because the unwashed masses say I should.
I would give them respect if they actually produced music instead of trite formulaic populist pap that runs from their record company.

Can you cite an example of some good music (note - not muzak - music) that they've produced that extends to more than 4 chords (not including any transpositions or inversions) - and I'm serious - I'd love to hear one that did because they certainly don't release any reasonably crafted works of music.

The abiding memory for most people from Live Aid I suspect will NOT be Quo but maybe something like the Cars and "Drive" - now that's complex non-forumlaic music that's worth having at a concert of this magnitude. Even Phil Colins and his dual appearances but certainly not Quo.

I wonder how these Dumbheads sold over 112 million records and are still going quite strong after 40 years playng only four chords . Simple music sure simplistic never.
Hey it's only Rock 'n' Roll

Hey, wasn't it great when Coldplay ended their "In My Place" with the lyrics "and I like it, I like it, I like it......... Rockin' alover the world." I guess that was a sign that these guys also wished Status Quo would have been there. Maybe even idols for THEM.

Funny thing, anyway...
