  1. Dear All, I am turning to you because of an important issue. And also because I do not have anywhere else to turn to for what I am about to ask. For some time now, war refugees are trying to get to Europe and it has become the biggest topic in EU and world media. I am convinced that millions of people would like to help but do not know how. Wouldn't it be fantastic to organize some sort of Live Europe Aid concerts, simultaniously in every capital of EU countries , to raise funds on a massive scale, to build awareness and support on an even bigger scale. You have the knowhow how to organize this, I am just a father of 4, in two months of 5 with no experience at all, but willing to help. I hope you read this and give it some thought, perhaps we can change some things for the better. We all need Hope, desperately... Hoping to hear from you, Kind regards, Philippe
  2. A nice review of the U2's historic performance 29 years ago on July 13th. "U2 formed in Dublin as teenagers in 1976. Between 1980 and 1985, they released four albums (Boy, October, War and The Unforgettable Fire). On July 13th, 1985, seemingly every major rock act on Earth played the Live Aid concert for African famine relief, hosted primarily in Philadelphia's JFK Stadium and London's Wembley Stadium and broadcast to over a billion people worldwide. Backstage at Wembley, U2 met some of their heroes, including Pete Townshend, David Bowie, Paul McCartney and Muhammad Ali. Freddie Mercury flirted with Bono, who was previously unaware that the Queen singer was gay. U2 hit the stage in London at 5:20 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time (12:20 p.m. on the East Coast of the States); they had a 20-minute slot between Bryan Adams and the Beach Boys (both performing in Philly). After being introduced by Jack Nicholson ("a group that's never had any problem saying how they feel"), U2 kicked off their set, which they intended to be three songs long, with 'Sunday Bloody Sunday.'" Then Rolling Stone explains with details what happened in every minute of that performance and the reaction of the band and the consequences of the day to U2's career. Nothing really 'new' to us but it's good to remember Check it out: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/u2s-bad-break-12-minutes-at-live-aid-that-made-the-bands-career-20140710
