I never really got into The BTR's material, but Mr. Geldof's 1986 album "Deep In The Heart of Nowhere" is a great album. My favorite tracks on the album are:

This Is The World Calling
Heartless Heart
I Cry To
August Was A Heavy Month
When I Was Young
Night Turns To Day

He's a great performer, and he's also been involved in Live Aid, and he's one of the music industry's most political people along with Bono, as well as others.

Can i point out that he isnt a Sir, due to the fact he isnt a British national?

Well, I've heard people and places call him "Sir Bob Geldof", and the last I checked he was british.

That doesn't make him a Sir, though.

I'm no Brit (though probobly in the back of my mind I secretly want to be one), but I do know this. He's Irish, and has yet to recieve the title of Sir or something of the sort from the Queen (on how to get that awesome title, click here). It's just a nickname of his.

Also, to double check, I asked a British person on AIM about it:

Me: Is Bob Geldof really a Sir?
British Person: Who?
Me: The Live 8 Guy
British Person: I don't think so
Me: Ok. Thanks.
British Person: PH33R

So yeah...back to the thread...

I have never heard any of his music and don't really plan on it.

The only thing Geldof did that I am familar with was "The Wall" movie, and he wasn't too bad in that.
