The Return of Band Aid
This was mentioned in at least two other places that I am aware of TTLB and Wizbang, but I had to comment.
“Sun 24 Oct at 23:30 on BBC Three
BBC Three marks the 20th anniversary of Band Aidâ€™s Do They Know Itâ€™s Christmas – the song that rocked the world.”
Band Aid founders planning new charity effort for Africa
Twenty years. High school, I was in high school. Now some of you will look at this and think of me as being a young pup, and you are right. I am. But it is a little surreal to look at a 20 year time frame and realize that it is no longer the bulk of my life.
It was a short time later during the Summer of 1985 that I watched Live Aid at a pub called Champs in Jerusale. I Googled Champs and found an address of 19 Jaffa Street. Wow, it is still there.
I have just a few stories to tell about my time there, Lalos and Pini’s Pub. Not to mention Ritchie’s Pizza, Pizza Rimini and a bunch of other places. Of course how many 16 year-olds get the opportunity to leave their parents for an entire Summer and then not have a good time.
I wonder if they tried to bring back the original members of Band Aid how it would fare. Let’s take a look at who it included:
Bob Geldof- I still think of him as Pink.
Phil Collins- Doing Disney soundtracks
George Michael- Did he ever recover from getting arrested for masturbating in public.
and members of:
Duran Duran- Just released a new album
Kool & The Gang- Sing with me now “Celebrate just being paid to sing this song”
U2- Still going strong
I hear VH-1 special. Excuse me while I go work on my lines.

Yes, he is. It is hard for me to think of him as anyone but Pink.

Bob Geldof IS Pink.

I have a lot to say, hopefully some of it is meaningful.

I remember this so vividly. I still have my 45 record of this and even play it now and then.
