What so you think of big star studded charity concerts like these ?
I like 'em. A little more authentic sometimes than a concert where they have played the songs 1000 times with the same other musicians.
They usually suck, musically at least. Sometimes they're awesome, but the ones I've seen, the musicians mostly hold back, not wanting to be thought of as a show-off, or something. If you like the people involved, of course it's always nice to get to see them.
Who wouldn't want to have been at SRV's last performance, I hear it was a mind-blower.
Queen, Live Aid. Nothing else gets close for me.
These deals where fifteen dudes are on stage playing some old classic with eight guitarists... hard pass.
All I know is that any of them, no matter what genre, will have Sheryl Crow involved
Haha yes thats a shame.
I thought Bowie topped Queen on Live Aid but thats just my opinion.
The Crossroads concert from 2004 is pretty darn good for such an event. I have it on DVD, and many of the performers on it are gone now such as Hubert Sumlin.
I can watch Vince Gill's performance of Oklahoma Borderline from that show any time it is available and never get tired of it.
I thought you said Big Star.
I never get tire of the Trucks-Tedeschi performance of Midnight In Harlem at the Crossroads 2010 show.
No argument here, that was a great one as well. I guess I just think of that Queen gig as sort of peak Freddie, and he was gone so soon after (5-6 years?).
Yes there seems to a be a lot of Good guitarists at thoes Cross roads concerts.
I remember the concert for Freddie Mercury when I was a kid. That was pretty fantastic. For the most part, I'd rather just see a normal show from most of these guys, but I don't often change the channel when Farm Aid comes on. I have some questions about how Farm Aid proceeds are used, but I enjoy most all of the music.
Indead that I understand was myself not Into Queen at that time it came later. I sat up whole night waiting For Paul McCartney and when he came on the mike was off half the song( which for some reason you cannot find on you tube, now it looks like the mike was on all the time which it sure wasnt). But Bowies Heroes blew me away. That song I remember Beeing the best one on the London Stage.
My two submissions:
Rock for Kampuchea.
Secret Policeman's Ball.
One of Mick Ronson's final public performances...
