sometimes when i watch the live aid concert, i ask myself why queen didn't perform with bowie. it was a perfect situation. it was possible to perform under pressure for one time with all involved persons. freddie, david, john, roger and brian.

...too bad!

Ego clash maybe?
PLUS their set was so perfect there was no need to add or change anything I guess...

Egos were the slime of the day at live aid. Even Trip thought he'd get his little moment when he goes and tells the camera man to back off from the piano just as Freddie puts on his guitar for Crazy little thing so he can get his little moment at the end of the song when he plays. Then as Queen wave goodbye at the end of we are the champions you can see him just in front of the drum kit also waving. All this can be seen on the dvds. Egotistical fools!

well he mustve thought! He's right in the middle of the stage behind Queen. This is visible on the dvd for a second before it cuts to America. Im sure he was standing there much longer than a second though! He takes a bow by the looks of it

Hang on a minute, Trip must have been behind the mixing desk surely.

Are you sure you dont mean Ratty?
