    But only a couple from each day were worthwhile ...The rest was just filler (Joan Baez, Richie Havens, Sha-Na-Na..etc)

    no it wasn't, because woodstock wasn't gay and didn't star glitter rock and hair bands

    Live Aid was a dual-venue concert held on 13 July 1985. The event was organized by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise funds for relief of the ongoing Ethiopian famine. Billed as the "global jukebox", the event was held simultaneously at Wembley Stadium in London, England, United Kingdom (attended by 72,000 people) and John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States (attended by about 100,000 people).[SUP][1][/SUP] On the same day, concerts inspired by the initiative happened in other countries, such as Australia and Germany. It was one of the largest-scale satellite link-ups and television broadcasts of all time: an estimated global audience of 1.9 billion, across 150 nations, watched the live broadcast.[SUP][2]

    if Geldof had just shown the world how good ethiopean grown coffee is, there would be no famine there.
