Live Hype

July 21, 1985

So all those multimillionaire rock stars got together and put on Live Aid for the starving in Africa.

Where were they when we needed them? Why wasn't this done long ago to fight the killer diseases? Or to combat hunger here in America? And that sickening, mass media, relentless hype about how wonderful they are for doing it, describing each magic moment of the session?

Wait. Is that Joan Baez or Florence Nightingale? Is that Mick Jagger or Dr. Albert Schweitzer??
