||"If I had stopped to think, I certainly
would have said No"
||" If ther`s a problem , you have to go out and
solve it "
||" Why am I playing at both Wembly and Philadelphia?
Because I`m mad that`s why "
||" Usually, when we come off stage, there are
people waiting with towels, drinks.Here I fell over and no one gave
a toss "
||" There are many of my heroes here - people I`ve
worshipped from afar "
||" If 2 tossers from Ireland and Scotland can
get off their butts and do something , maybe other tossers will
do the same "
||" I came here to play music, and I didn`t really
realize the full extent and magnitude of what it is all about. Now
I`m here, it`s the greatest event ever "
||" It was the most Electrifying felling being
there - no other reason than the cause. I wish I could do even more
||" I came to play in Philadelphia because of the
cause, because of Live Aid, of course. But I also came to have myself
a good time. And I`ve sure as hell done That "
||" They say the entertainment industry can never
get together. Fooled them again didn`t we? "
||" We Wanted people to stop, to look, to listen
and most importantly to help "
||" This is what rock and roll is all about. Its
an event as much as its music "
||" I`m just proud to be here. I`m a canadian and
tears are not enough. Let`s all do what we can for Live Aid "
||" The energy is there simply because the event
creates such a unique feeling "
||" We always said we`d never play together again.
We always meant it. But it would have been kind of difficult not
to get together again for this day "
||" I`ve just realized that today is the best day
of my life. Now I`m going home to sleep "
||" Two minutes before we came on stage, we decided
to play `American Girl`, since this is, after all, JFK stadium "
||" I wanted to be part of the cause. When I take
the stage, my chance will finally be here "
||" I chose my songs for the show very carefully.
I wanted music that would trace my development; I wanted to show
my past and then my future, and also what I`m famous for "
||" I was in England this afternoon.. funny old
world innit "
||" All these bands going on and no one`s overrunning.
That`s a statement in itself "
||" What impresses me about today is that people
who have a certain amount of sensititiy and artistic tendencies
can be heard, and their music can make a difference "
||" I have been blessed in my life and I don`t
take my good fortune for granted. That`s what Live Aid is all about
||" I can`t do what you can do and you can`t do
what I can do. But we both have to do it "
||" It went very quickly. The greatest moment of
my life, and it just flashed by "
||" We will move a little from the comfort of our
lives to understand their hurt "
