If it's July 13 and I'm still a Philadelphian, there's some videos I'm obligated to promote, again. 33 years ago today, Live Aid. First, Ashford & Simpson welcome Philly's own Teddy Pendergrass back to the stage for the first time since his accident.
From Wembley, U2's starmaking Live Aid performance -- a/k/a "the one in which Bono gets lost and the band is forced to vamp for a long time and has no idea where he is,"
(From a RS oral history of that performance: )…
Queen, July 13, 1985, Live Aid. #goodluckramimalek
George Michael w/Elton John, "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me," Live Aid.
And finally, Miss Patti LaBelle doing whatever she wants with "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," July 13, 1985.
oh, one more: @WesleyStace, "July 13, 1985," which @blackfog and I once saw him perform on a July 13 at Penn's Landing in Phila, only to have a drenching t-storm start in the middle of the song.
