Saturtainment: Live Aid (1985)

It was one of those events that, when it's recalled, will have people asking you where you were when it happened.

Live Aid was, practically, the ultimate concert event, originating from two locations: Wembley Stadium in London, and John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia. The event was broadcast live on MTV and featured a who's who of musical acts of that era and prior.

One of the classic acts on the bill was Crosby, Stills, & Nash, who were introduced to the MTV generation a couple of years earlier with the release of the "Daylight Again" album. Here, courtesy of LiveAidVideo, the trio of David Crosby, Stephen Stills, & Graham Nash perform one of their earlier hits, "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes".

Now, this was a way to shake the summer rerun blues, don't ya think?
