The iconic DARLENE LOVE, performing last night on the David Letterman Show, for the 30th year in a row her famous "Christmas" (Baby Please Come Home) song. It's always a big production with a full orchestra (note Paul Shaffer in the background)... As Letterman is retiring, Darlene also retires this song from any future late night performances... Several years ago Darlene was enrolled in the "Rock N Roll Hall of Fame!"
U2 Live Aid 1985 - my birthday, also - if you weren't around at the time, it's hard to explain. U2 showed a lot of promise, but was about as big as Death Cab for Cutie is now - then they played at Live Aid in front of millions, and overnight became one of the world's biggest bands. Charisma.
