Paul McCartney would like to share with the world, and he's going to do it by posting his extensive collection of artwork, videos, and master recordings online.

Sure, if we could choose, we'd probably prefer to share a good conversation with him over coffee, but this works too!

This project will give us all access to some items that have never been released before, such as never-before-seen Live Aid footage of McCartney.

Hewlett-Packard (HP) is taking on this project, and they're treating it with care. They've got a team of between 30 and 100 people devoted to it.

If this turns out well, HP may approach other artists about posting their collections online.

What do U collect? Would U want your collection posted online?

The pop icon is currently following the footsteps of Bob Geldof by planning a Live Aid type charity concert to benefit Malawi, which will be shown on TV around the world.

She has already called several of her celeb friends, including Bono, to perform at the Walk Out of Poverty concert in September.

A source at her Raising Malawi charity has confirmed that plans are well underway so that Madonna "make(s) this the biggest fund-raiser the world has ever seen. (She) is throwing everything into it. She knows the bigger the event the more money will be raised."

We know that if Madonna is planning it, it will be amazing! We can't wait to see who else she lines up for the concert!

Coming Soon! Live Aid: The Movie

Filed under: TV News

In 1985, Irish rocker Bob Geldof and promoter Harvey Goldsmith set out to raise money to feed the hungry in Ethiopia. Now their journey in creating the international charity concert, Live Aid is becoming a TV movie.

The film, When Harvey met Bob, has begun filming in Dublin.

Producer Kate Triggs said:

"We were inspired by this story because it has, at its heart, a fantastic relationship that is funny, moving and born out of the real drama of trying to achieve something huge and unprecedented. It's a film about two men who are prepared to think the unthinkable and achieve the seemingly impossible."

Inneresting.
