Good Charlotte sounded okay for what they are.. Tokyo

Has anyone actually seen a picture of one of those Live 8 Africa guitars?

Can't say i saw any of those guitars, I did hear though that Pink Floyd were offered $100 million to get back together for a tour of the states and they turned it down, they said they didnt need the money, ummm, maybe Africa could do with a little? they could have toured, donated the lot, and gone up 10 notches in everyones expectations, and they could have had a great time too, anyone that saw them play London could see they were well into that set, big smiles all round. :lol:
Gilmour is a fantastic player, the band are monumental and it seems a real shame to box that up over past fall outs and squabbles.

Joss Stone's guitarist played one of the Africa guitars on one song, but the camera never zoomed in on it, so we didn't get a good look at it.

TBF 2 PF, as soon as the sudden increase in sales from Floyd's back-catalogue became apparent following the gig, they pledged the royalties to Live 8. Bet that was a shock to Kaiser Chiefs; whose "We'll do Philly, to be broadcast immediately after Hyde Park" smacked of less-than-altruism. Also, I read elsewhere that DG was asked to support a charity for London's homeless. His response was, "Well, I've got a place I don't really use" so he sold it for 6 million+ and punted them the cheque.

No speech, no headlines, but pretty :shock: , :D , of him to do so.
