    From that article:

    ""We are talking to every act that ever picked up a guitar or sang into a microphone," the spokesman said."

    My eighth grade buddies and I used to play in my basement - I'll sit by the phone and wait for the spokesman's call! [​IMG]

    They're stressing in the British press that this is not called Live Aid 2 & they don't want the name attached.

    Considering all the talk from Geldof that "This isn't Live Aid 2", you'd have to question the use of this logo for the event...it certainly "reminds" me of Live Aid!

    So far I've heard rumours of Genesis, Pink Floyd & the Spice Girls all reforming for this. Can't possibly all happen.

    Just saw this on Today yesterday morning.
    Geldoff is pushing it as political awareness as opposed to a fundraiser. He is also wanting the concerts to end with a million person march on Washington.

    The acts mentioned in the segment were U2, Paul Mcartney, Elton John, Will Smith and Maroon 5.

    The only act I'm interested in seeing (madonna) is in London so it looks like I'll be staying home to watch this one. Besides, man, the music of the 80's is still a helluva lot better than the crap that's out today. I feel like this is the Woodstock concert that took place a decade ago or whenever it was.

    Depends on what you listen to. I think there's a hell of alot of stuff out today that's better than the 80's.

    I'm betting this is why Geldof & Co were reluctant to connect it to Live Aid in the first place. Because, frankly it could never get as good as the first time.

    Anyhow, I think the list is fairly impressive. Particulary the London lineup. And it's not a complete list yet

    I'm not trying to thread crap, and there are some potentially good individual acts in the line up, but am I the only one to think that overall a high proportion of the acts suck big time? The usual collection of old faces who should have retired whilst they still had some dignity and a handful of here today gone tommorrow one hit wonders.

    I don't know how much of this the American media have picked up on, but Bob Geldof is being criticised over here for the impracticality of some of arguments and the events associated with the event. [I originally posted details of some of these, but on reflection I fear that it may be too politically-oriented so I've edited this message. I'm happy to go into details provided people only want it for cultural information and aren't going to hijack it into a political debate].

    I really don't see this........ Which of the acts do you think fall into the "old faces who should have retired whilst they still had some dignity"-category? CSN, Paul McCartney, Sting, Annie Lennox, Duran Duran, Bon Jovi?
    And who do you consider the "handful of here today gone tommorrow one hit wonders"?
    I think it looks like a good mix. There's quite a few of the bands I'm no fan of, but there's not one single act that REALLY stands out as an eye-sore (that is, if the whole SPICE-GIRLS 'reunion' isn't happening.....)
