25 Years Ago This Weekend

It's hard to believe, that 25 years ago this weekend was the Moscow Music Peace Festival. Actually 8/12-8/13. Those of you from Generation X understand the meaning of what took place. Not just in the music world, but in the world in general. It was shortly after, that the Berlin Wall fell and a sordid history was reformed. Some days it feels like only yesterday and some days it feels like a life time ago.

Twenty five years ago, the music scene took foot hold in the USSR's largest venue, Luzhniki StadiumAmong massive turmoil going on, the music world stepped forward with the help of the of the Make A Difference Foundation and rocked to the would be crowd of some 100,000 plus fans. I remember watching on MTV (when it actually stood for music), and wishing I could have been in attendance.

The bands that played were, Cinderella, Gorky Park (good band too), Nuance, Brigada-S, Scorpions, Skid Row, Bon Jovi, Ozzy and Motley Crue.

Tonight, I get to go see a band that I grew up on, that is calling it quits. One who played the legendary festival and one who personified the whole sex, drugs and rock n' roll attitude. Motley Crue. The last performance I saw live was the Dr Feelgood tour, over 20 years ago.

Some days, it's funny to look back at the past and see where we came from. The trial and tribulations of the world. Then to see what is going on now. One has to feel that in part, sometimes it feels, as if the world has gotten worse rather than better. Maybe it's time for another form of the Moscow festival? Something to being the people of the world together.
