Then and now … this time last year Bo Rhap was on your movie theatre screens – this year it’s on our Tellies. None of us had any idea it would smash every box office record around the world and bring happiness to so many. I haven’t posted this comparison before, so thanks @brilliantmusicians for bringing it up. It’s a wonderful endorsement of the meticulous work Rami and the team put into recreating the climax of the movie. Note the kiss blown right at the end – who had noticed that before the film came out ?? Then and now. And 33 years ago, on that sunny Live Aid afternoon, who among us knew that those moments – those notes – at the old Wembley Stadium would live on and reach a new generation whose parents weren’t even around that day ?! And back further … in 1970 … well, it was all just a dream. It’s been an amazing journey. Thanks folks. Bri
