Live Aid II

So it looks like U2's Bono is going to put on a secornd Live Aid in 2005 to "celebrate" 20 years since that momentous event of 1985 .....

In principle a good idea if done for the right reason ... by this I mean yes everyone "will benefit" from exposure for their own careers ... but I hope there is a blanket ban on any act using it to promote a latest single or album ...

Now how about all acts that perform have to do "cover versions" of songs that fit the theme of helping others ....

Now who should play and what to perform .... mmmm

Of course up for the Alarm doing Neil Youngs "Rockin' In The Freeworld" and how about Big Country's "In a Big Country" or "Chance" ....

Or The Alarm's Mike Peters and Bono going back into their past to perform a version of Knockin' On Heavans Door in memorial to Stuart Adamson of Big Country.

Bono, Mike and Stuart performed it together on stage back in 1984 I think it was.
