This video was made at the very last minute for “Live Aid” in 1985. Bowie and Jagger were originally going to sing a duet, Bowie at Wembley and Jagger in Philadelphia. They discovered at the last minute that the sattelite technology of the time would cause a two second delay, so they could not sing in sync. Instead they decided to record this single. The video was shot on the Wednesday 10th, edited on Thursday 11th and released to the BBC on Friday 12th to be transmitted at Live Aid on Saturday 13th July 1985.
Brilliant. How drunk do you think these two were? I love the part where Mr. Jagger grabs his beer mid-shot.
