1985 gave us Live Aid, which to me was the next generation's Woodstock. Did you pay attention to it? Watch it on TV? Attend in person? Like it? Dislike it?

My oldest daughter was growing in her Mom's womb when this concert happened. My mind was mostly on that. But I took note of Live Aid and was impressed by the scope of it. Every time I heard about it or saw some of it, I thought of Woodstock. I also thought of Mecca and the hordes of pilgrims who flock there each year. Our banner makes me think of Mecca.

Stadium rock was something very much like a religious experience for many - and Live Aid was stadium rock unleashed to the utmost.

With standout vocals by MJ, Steve Perry, and Cyndia Lauper. I thought Springsteen and Stevie Wonder were given too much solo time.

The remade Bieber and co. version of the song is. . .not good.
