During a drunken conversation with my mates we started talking about how bad the music industry is today. A few minutes later we started talking about Live Aid and how the 80's will probaly be the last decent decade for popular music (early 90's were good but not a great decade on the whole ) Anyways i mentioned how great it would be if one day there was a Live Aid DVD boxset avialable. I was only three when it was shown and i've always wanted to see it. Now before someone jumps in and says it will never happen due to copyright i'd like to say my piece. LIVE AID 85: Collectors Edition Boxset. (6 discs) This set would feature the best of both the US and UK broadcasts. It would feature archive interviews and new retropective interviews. It would also include a documentary on how the money was spent. Basically it would give us a very big taste of the whole experiance. Profits from the DVD would go to the Band Aid Trust fund which is still in existence. I would expect the company involved to keep a share to cover, DVD authoring, production etc. This would be a Region 0 release as it would sell worldwide. I reckon it would sell a few million worldwide so there would be lots of money going to a good cause. I know all the artists only agreed to do the show for free back in the day but if Bob Geldof perhaps approached the DVD in the same way as the concert then i'm sure mayby it coluld happen. remember its not a 100% commercial venture. Most of the proceeds would go to charity and the legend of the event would be preserved on DVD for future generations. I'm contacting the BBC tommorow and get a contact for the Band Aid trust. Then i'll tell them my idea. I'm sure they've thought of it 100 times before but i'd like to find out if theres anyway it could happen. July 13th 2005 is the 20th Aniversary. That gives us two years!
