My Live Aid display, autographs by Freddie Mercury, Paul McCartney & Bono

Just wanted to show you my Live Aid display that I just made.

I loved the Live Aid concert and the impact it had on music as a political ”weapon” and I have always loved the photo of Macca, Freddie and Bono from that concert. These are three of my biggest heroes in music and Live Aid was the big breakthrough for U2 and a resurgence for Queen.

I wanted all graphs to be about the same size and signed in the same way, bold and in blue sharpie, to match each other. Yes, I know that Freddie is on a blue paper, but try to find Macca & Bono on that too... :-)

I hope you will like it! And you’re always welcome to drop a comment below and let me know what you think!


Info about the autographs:
- Bono: Obtained by Andy Hemington of ”Autograph & Memorabilia” (UACC dealer #213, AFTAL dealer #8 and RACC dealer #186) at Merrion Hotel, Dublin Ireland in 2007.

- Paul McCartney: Obtained by Mark Kirkup of ”In-Person-Autographs” (AFTAL dealer #12 and RACC dealer #144) outside Paul’s office in Soho, London in 2009 or 2010.

- Freddie Mercury: Bought from member Innuendo (the best on Queen) and it was obtained by a friend of him in Los Angeles in 1983.

Great display! Jan. I just had a chance to watch Bohemian Rhapsody last month and I really love your display.

This is what I call a DISPLAY.
No words to express my CONGRATULATIONS to Cogo for this one, and to his framer for a really astonishing museum work.
Cogo is really THE MAN. And when I find a proper pic to frame my Queen set with, I will for sure take this as an example.
CONGRATULAZIONI COGO! E' DAVVERO UN'OPERA D'ARTE!
Once again man, congratulations for your displays! Keep it up!

p.s.: did you use Museum Glass and acid-free passepartout?
I had a NIN "The Fragile" signed poster, but my framer used simple glass.
I asked him to frame it again with Museum AntiUV Glass...
I think I will have it framed again after the summer.

Wow, that’s some compliments right there! Thank you my friend, makes me happy hearing you liked it!

And yes, it’s framed properly!
