Live 8 : MTV
Date: July 4, 2005 00:27
MTV and VH1 is a disgrace!
I hope they are proud of thier part in Live 8.
I was disgusted the whole day and turned off my recorder after 1 hour.
Every ten mintues it seemed there was 15 min of ads.
In that time they show no complete song performed. I'm not sure if they ever did.
Why they came on at 12.00 is beyond me. McCartney and U2 opening, MTV is showing a Punk'ed marathon. (and they Punk'ed us too!!)
Some 5 Billion people, some 150 countries, and America gets 2 (actually 1) channels with more commericals and useless drivel than music.
It saddened me to see Geldof, the center man of this event, sing Monday live while MTV played Black Eye Peas with Pizza Hut ads.
I'm sorry i think it was damn right rude!
Thanks for letting me vent.....
So isn't the Internet somethin?
Goin from London to Berlin to Paris and Rome with a click of the mouse.
I never had a glich. It was really like being at some large festival with different stages. There were a few moments where it kinda felt like 1985 with a twist.
I thought everyone was great and having a good time. I rarely rarely watched Philly. The Who, Stereophonics, Velvet Revolver were some of my faves. Hell, even Motley Crue was fun to see!
Hats Off to Geldof! I hope something is done for his cause and the People of Africa.
Shame on MTV for probably making more money that giving out to the cause.
