Because It's Never Just About the Music

Edinburgh Rock 

To Murrayfield, where on Wednesday the last of the Live 8 gigs designed to change, if not the world, then at least the profile of certain high priority artists took place. We had planned on doing this piece on Thursday but, y'know, we didn't. In fact we didn't originally plan on covering this event at all and went to the pub instead, a plan which would have met with success had it not been for the fact that they were showing it on the telly there. So here, for your delectation, are a few thoughts about the gig, though we would like you to bear in mind that by the end of the event we were quite drunk, so we apologise if our views become somewhat random, incoherent, or make reference to things that never actually happened.
