Phil Collins “In the Air Tonight”- Live Aid Philadelphia 7-13-85

with 100,000 people for Live Aid US, I stood back of center stage about ten feet behind Phil Collins who was seated at a black grand piano. Beside me looking over his 3"x 5" recipe cards with notes for stage announcements stood Jack Nicholson. Collins, fresh off the Concorde supersonic jet which had conveyed him from his earlier performance at the London Live Aid concert, sang his surprise movie hit "Against All Odds" and then "the other song I know on piano"...
