07.13: The world rocked all at the same time for charity, today in 1985. Live Aid took place simultaneously at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia and Wembley Stadium in London, raising millions of dollars for the needy in Ethiopia. Among the notable acts that played: The Who, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, U2, Madonna, and a monumental performance by the incomparable Queen. Organized by Boomtown Rats lead singer Bob Geldof (of the one hit wonder "I Don't Like Mondays" and the role of "Pink" in the film Pink Floyd's The Wall), Live Aid proved to be much bigger than anyone ever suspected it could be. It had been initially hoped that the shows would raise over a million dollars, but, when all was said and done, it raised over 150 million dollars. Not bad, Bob Geldof, not bad.

Though it's been officially open for a few weeks, Hard Rock Cafe Florence celebrated its grand opening with a party the likes of which this company hasn't seen in a while: a full-blown street party where the whole town is invited! Actually, now that we reflect on the monumental nature of said street party, we're going to stop calling it that and call it a festival. Yes, Hard Rock Cafe Florence's grand opening was nothing short of a festival. Don't believe us? Check out the pics below.

In celebration of Hard Rock's 40th, and in collaboration with the gracious Janie Hendrix, artist Alan Aldridge and our friends at Fender, a one of a kind, custom Jimi Hendrix designed guitar was revealed at Hard Rock Calling, in London.  This iconic piece of music history was to commemorate the beginning of a future philanthropic program, details of which will be announced shortly - ALL IS ONE. 


07.04: What a wonderful world, indeed, as American jazz great Louis Armstrong, or Satchmo, as we love to call him, was born on this day in 1900. One of the greatest  trumpeters and bandleaders during the big band and swing eras of jazz, inarguably the most popular time for jazz, Armstrong's amazingly raspy, deep, and smokey voice will, in our mind, forever reverberate through our heads with the tune "What A Wonderful World." What a great song and an amazing talent. For real, seek out his work, a greatest hits collection, whatever, and you will not be disappointed. Happy birthday, Louie. You are one of the original rock stars.
