Who is Bob Geldof?

Initially famous as the frontman for the late 70s to late 80s band, The Boomtown Rats. In 1978, The Boomtown Rats had their first No. 1 single in the UK with “Rat Trap”, the first new wave chart-topper in Britain.  It was the first No.1 by any Irish act in the UK charts. In 1979, they gained international attention with their second UK No. 1, “I Don’t Like Mondays”
Geldof also wrote and produced Band Aid’s tune, “Do They Know It’s Christmas-time?” with musician Midge Ure. Band Aid later evolved into Live Aid, the first international real-time concert, broadcast across the globe for two days. Live Aid and Band Aid were created to bring relief to the starving in Ethiopia.

Bob Geldof, the African knight

Came across this article with Sir Bob giving his views on Live Aid, the role of Dubai in its success, why Africa is the safest place to invest etc.

I would certainly view Africa as the safest zone to be in, economically and socially, right now. First off, Europe, the size of Congo, is extremely fractious at the moment and very dangerous because we are extremely armed

As usual he is forthright in his views, whether you agree with them or not!!
