NotesOn May 20 and 21, 1985, 40 artists from the hard rock music community gathered at A&M Records Studios to participate in the making of a record called "Stars" as part of a very special project known as Hear'N Aid. The "Stars" single, coupled with the album, a video documentary on the making of the record, and other ancillary products will raise money for famine relief efforts in Africa and around the world.
40 artists and hundreds of volunteers donated their time and talent over four months to make Hear'N Aid a reality. "Stars" is a plea for unity in the fight against world hunger.
