Stones 'Agreed To Song Censorship' (no Who)

If Geldof got it for Live Aid, why didn't Harrison get it for Bangladesh? I think it is valid, however, for any kind of British artist to receive a knighthood or CBE for their work. I don't think it makes you "The Man" all of the sudden, I believe it just proclaims that you have brought honor to Britain through your work and/or life.

tis funny since he pretty much started the whole "band aid" thing after 
feeling that the british government, including royalty, wasn't doing anything 
themselves to help with the problems in africa.   by the way, it's "geldof", minus 
the "r". ; )
