Midge Ure is Musician and Co-organiser of Band Aid and Live Aid and Live 8. November 25, 1984 was an historic day for Midge Ure and all of pop music, as 36 artists by the collective name Band Aid gathered at SARM Studios in West London under Midgeâs production. They recorded Do They Know Itâs Christmas?, a song he had just written with Bob Geldof as the industryâs heartfelt and eloquent contribution to Ethiopian famine relief. The unstoppable emotion engendered by the project led to Live Aid, the summer 1985 global concert that, all exaggeration aside, spoke for a generation.
