Live Aid was one of the biggest concert events of all time. Queen’s performance at Live Aid (watch it here) is considered one of the greatest live performances of all time by any band. That’s what makes this video of rare backstage footage from Live Aid so remarkable in it’s simplicity. The video starts out with footage of all of the “rock stars” being herded together and lectured to about what they need to do for their “meet and greet” with the Duke and Duchess of York, aka Prince Charles and Lady Diana.
Our favorite part of the video is when Phil Collins asks Paul Young to sign a couple of autographs for his kids, Simon and Joely!
Oh, and Elton John’s mullet is priceless!
