I really would have liked to have seen Radiohead, but they had their reasons I guess.

I enjoyed seeing Sting, but I would have liked to have seen Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland perform with him.

Live 8 was so-ooo incredible seeing Pink Floyd and The Who reunite and if The Police would have performed ... it would have been even more incredible.

Powderfinger would have fit well especially if they sung Roll Right By You.


Bob Dylan would have fit well especially if he sung anything.

I have to say Bowie first. I was acctually really expecting him to be there.

Who else? I think Radiohead SHOULD have been there, but they appearantly have their collective heads so far up their own asses that they can't sacrifice their foux obscurity to lend their incredible talents to the most epic charity event of the past two decades.

Oh yeah, and while I'm ranting, Radiohead, you guys better give me some "real" f**king songs on your next album! I've had enough of this Backdrifts, Gloaming, THe RayNEdRoPs, Teeh RAINDrops!boop!!!boop! shit!


ok, whoo, rant over.

^^I thought it was because Jonny and his wife have had a baby, and thats why they couldn't make it to live 8.

Well, if that's the reason, than I take back the Live 8 statement.

The rest of my rant, however still stands.

Bowie

David Bowie would have been good, Queen too, but I don't think it would have seemed right without Freddie

I was really peeved, one of my fav bands Muse was meant to be performing in London but then did Paris instead...
I'll have to buy it on DVD so I can watch their performance.
