Graybo on Live8

I managed to curtail my usually unbridled cynicism and watch/listen to a fair bit of the London Live8 gig last night whilst getting ready to go to/going to/having dinner at friends. It wasn’t bad for the most part (Jonathan Ross making a few barbed comments about the Eden Project gig along the lines of "wow! it looks like the real fun is going on there!") apart from some slightly nauseating luvvies getting it on with their egos (whilst it’s jolly good of these people to give their time and energy to do it, one can’t help but think that they will be making a hefty mint in royalties from increased record sales and lovely publicity).
But best of all was seeing The Who and the reformed Floyd showing the kids how it should be done. I get the feeling that we’ll never see the likes of that again.
