I'm doing a research paper on Live Aid, and I came across this site and I noticed that a majority of these reviews mention Queen and how amazing they were. If your interested take a look: http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/thelive8event/haveyoursay/liveaidmemories.shtml

Cheers

Plain and simple:

Queen's performance at live aid was one of the best totally live, totally vunerable, "don't fuck up the world is watching" performances that has ever been done...anywhere, anytime.

I was 7 years old during Live Aid, I remember going to the local swimming pool the next day, and all the cool high school guys had their white tank tops on, singing Radio Ga Ga into their lotion bottles, and all the high school girls were like "Oh shut up, you aren't Freddie Mercury."

They all stepped up that day....they all rocked under pressure...but that day belonged to Freddie... he was the shining star among 3 other bright ones.

Even fans who don't like Queen have admited to me that they were the best preformers there. Admitedly, I only bought the Live Aid DVD because Queen were on there :D

The energy Queen generated during their performance was electric! Makes you feel proud.

Definitely queen, they stole the show freddie was great he had the audiance in the palm of his hand, I liked david bowie and U2. evan bob geldof said queen stole the show. several months ago pbs, had thier annual fund raiser and it had live aid on it not the whole show but it did have the part with queen.

Maybe it's true, but I hate the phrase 'palm in his hand'... it's so over-used, even though it's true!

Freddie was high on cocaine and meth during his Live Aid performance. Be sure to include that in your research paper!

Mr. Snow, your nickname and cocaine have a lot in common. Are you a converted drug addict? I don't think they had meth back in 1985,and if they did, it is a drug of last resort consumed by people who are too poor to afford anything else. Freddie had class and did coke. You on the other hand must have done a lot of crystal meth in your life and it burnt huge holes in your brain. Hence your bable.
Anyway, time to hit some fresh powder.
