Bob Geldof hung a sign on the door of the recording studio which said "Leave Your Ego At The Door". Prince (notorious for both his ego and his tantrums) reportedly drove away after seeing the sign. The solo originally planned for Prince to sing was given to Huey Lewis. See more »
Nice documentary of the making of this most famous song/video. The highlight for me had to be the Stevie Wonder/Bruce Springsteen duet in the middle of the song. The songs essence and passion is evident during this section of the performance. I do wish Cyndi Lauper and other pop singers didn't have such a large role in this performance, but it's good overall.
