Bob Geldof's quotes

  • [About different motivations for taking up causes] "Bono as we all know, is in love with the world, he's enamoured by it. I'm enraged by it. He wants to give the world a great big hug, I want to punch its lights out."
  • [on Live Aid (1985)] I was content. We had got every major British pop artist of the last quarter of a century.
  • [on David Bowie's endorsement of Band Aid] That's the seal of approval for the rock community. Bowie says it cool. Must be then. It doesn't get much cooler than Bowie.
  • [on David Bowie's suggestion that Live Aid should be an annual event] If he wants to give up six months a year to do it, fair enough. Live Aid took me six months to organise. I can't afford the time to organise another one myself.
