Oh. :))) That was really lovely.
Yes, she is amazing, isn't she? I bet you're feeling just great and very well impressed by her strength, talent and determination.
I agree with you, I think it'd have been lovely to see both of them performing together - they conquered the state as few in the business.
It's, in fact, one of Live Aid's highlights apart from Queen: Tina and Mick Jagger singing "State of Shock" - which is interesting because, if my memory serves me right, and I don't think it does late at night, because Michael Jackson originally recorded the song with Freddie Mercury, though the single by The Jacksons ended up featuring Mick Jagger, a singer who's very underated, in my humble opinion - he's an example of a frontman who really trained and worked hard to become a real, talented and exciting singer. He improved so much over the years, to his credit. Some of the Stones latest tours have been just amazing, as far as my taste goes.
I can't think of any other reason for them not performing together other than the fact that Michael had already released a single with Jagger and went on to collaborate with other people as Freddie was all too busy with the Hot Space and Works tours - if Freddie had released a single with Michael, I guess he'd have been half-way to recording something or performing with Tina.
I guess the main reason was lack of time, problems of schedule, it just wasn't to be: Freddie could have had a larger role in Michael's recordings and videos, but time didn't allow it; and then came the Works Tour, the Live Aid, which catapulted Queen to fame again, the magic tour, the side-projects he was interested in at that time - his solo album, the work with Monserrat...
That'd have been a hell of a show, yes, I guess it would.
Thanks for sharing this with us! She's amazing!
