Howard Jones talks Live Aid, strange gigs and pop positivity




Howard Jones is a man who knows his way around a good pop hit. The '80s singer-songwriter is responsible for smashes like No One Is To Blame and Everlasting Love, and on Thursday, he's coming to Largo.

Along the way, he found time to chat with Steve Spears about an array of subjects, from the positive vibes of his music to his most memorable gigs, including Live Aid.

"I was very, very happy to be a part of that," he said. "I know I only played one song — Hide and Seek — but that song is me. I wasn't one of the ones pushing to get hold of the microphone. I was just happy to be there and share the stage with those amazing artists."

Jones performs Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Largo Cultural Center. Tickets are $35-$40. Click here to buy.
