Warning, if you remember Band Aid/Live Aid you'll feel old
I loved the Band Aid song. They're re-recording it this year. I also remember the concert. But boy, oh boy, Geldof has not aged well.

3. He's had a tumultuous life of late...
Paula left him for Hutchence, Hitchence committed suicide over Geldof's kids, then Paula followed suit.

I'm 45 and I still look good, but I haven't been through a bad soap opera...

5. Yes, a DVD set
I had the box in my hands last week, but decided against buying it for now.

6. Wow...I remember all of that vividly.
Good time to re-record this, with what's going on in the world.

7. You'll notice watching LiveAid again
That just about everyone on stage is wearing white.



That's so you can see them from the back of Wembley Stadium.



or from outer space
