That said, is anybody here alive who actually was alive when Live Aid happened?
The reason I ask is -- and given that this was pre-internet so I have no idea how I heard it -- there was a rumour going around that weekend that The Beatles were going to do a reunion set with Julian Lennon filling in for John.
Specifically, that Billy Ocean said he had seen them rehearsing.
Anybody remember that? Or have any info on how that story got around?
