> Wembley.


I'm not a sports fan, and it's been at least ten years
since I've seen the video. I was close.

> At Wembley, the screens went out during MG and PW.
The only power loss was for the broadcast signal radio
and video.

Ah. So the cameras TAPING the show should have still
been online. I doubt seriously they were taping from
the broadcast...more likely the broadcast was farther
up in the "loop." Unless they were doing it completely
different than the standard method, the cameras would
go to a director's booth who would pick the feed to
broadcast. The cameras should each have their own
taped picture.

Yes...well, we know it was all that moke Mark
Goodman's fault for saying nothing had gone wrong.

> Er......Wembley?

Why should I care? WHY should I CARE...

> I'll be proven wrong if WGFA on the DVD isn't

And it will mean the other stuff could be
In fact, we'll know if the DVD is edited differently
than the broadcast would mean the tapes of
the show exist and were recut for the release, right?

> audience at Live Aid *needed* The Who to channel all
their emotions.

Yeah...Phil Collins just wasn't cutting it.

I AM pissed that they left off my all-time favorite
version of The Waiting by Tom Petty. Bastards!
