Midge Ure OBE

In detail

1984 was an historic year for Midge Ure and all of pop music, as 36 artists by the collective name Band Aid gathered at SARM Studios under Midge's production. They recorded Do They Know It's Christmas?, a song he wrote with Bob Geldof. The project led to Live Aid, which all exaggeration aside, spoke for a generation. Midge organised the Live 8 concerts with Bob Geldof, with the aim of pressuring G8 leaders into following his recipe for ending world poverty. In 2005 he was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to music and charity.
