A toot from the past: Kool & the Gang at Live Aid

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked for this online. Actually, I probably could – it’s not that many, I’ve got a job (sort of) – but finally someone has put it on YouTube.

Skip to 4 minutes (unless you really like Cherish) and watch the trumpet player as he gets his big moment and can’t understand why nothing’s coming out of his trumpet. I watched this over and over immediately after Live Aid – I thought it was utterly hilarious, particularly when he manages one small squeak.

(I didn’t find it anywhere near as funny as I did when I was 14, but I’m still very happy to see it again.)
