"Fascinating ... a unique insight into the day, and the decade." *
"Live Aid was such an utterly humungous phenomenon that, in many ways, it came to define our memories of an entire decade ... Dylan Jones [is] perfectly poised at the heart of it all to give us an electric and sometimes eye-opening account." * Star magazine *
