Check out Live 8 Highlights
The rambling duet by Elton John and Pete Doherty of a Marc Bolan track was pretty funny. Doherty looked out of his mind, as usual.
Coldplay is worth checking out for the duet with Richard Ashcroft on "Bitter Sweet Symphony," and the U2 thing is sort of interesting, opening with "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" with McCartney.
Actually, the most worthwhile band to watch is the Pink Floyd reunion. They sounded really good, surprisingly.

But i feel i have to stand on the side of protections first for "professionals," not to say that bloggers shouldn't be protected.
It's that bloggers don't have to play by the same rules as a pro journo does so they don't have to adhere to the same standards to corroborate what's being written.
