Neil on Live 8

Just bought the Q magazine for September and has note From Russia With Love about PSB in Russia. Neil says: ‘Emma Freud /wife of co-organizer Richard Curtis/ approached me at a party and asked if we’d headline the Live 8 show in Moscow. I’ve never linked it when pop stars tell the public about politics and sell records on the back of it. But she answered my concerns very well, so I sat down with Chris and he said: We’ve got to do it! We had the most dramatic backdrop of all, with St. Basil’s Cathedral looming over us’.
