Today's Blog reflects on the profound impact Ric Ocasek made upon me - and the world - when one of his band's songs (Drive) was married with a video of the dead and dying in Ethiopa by an unknown engineer at CBC and featured at Live Aid.

Very good Andy. The power of music to go so much more beyond fame and fortune is but one reason it means so much to me. It kind of makes me think that for every situation out there, for everyone going through a rough time that there is a song that seems written just for them and their own situation. I honestly forgot about this Live Aid moment but the memories came flooding back just now to that day.

Today's Blog is a brief rant on those that weren't there, invoking the "Dunkirk Spirit".
