Sir Bob Geldof was the guest recently on the CBC Radio interview show, Q.
He talked with host Jian Gomeshi about African aid, LiveAid, Live8, his new album, the sudden death of his sister and a brief story about his father and a broken-back Bono hobbling to the pub together.
If you, like me, had never really paid much attention to Sir Bob Geldof other than as Bono’s “African charity buddy” I’d strongly encourage you to watch/listen to the hour long interview. Link to iTunes podcast video
Something to watch over the Christmas break while you wait for U2 to get back out on the road after opening their presents.
In this episode we catch up after a long hiatus from recording and find that Chris and Christopher are a little rusty in the ways of the podcast. But we did manage to chat a bit about the European tour wrapping up, the North American tour kicking off, Christopher’s plans to attend a concert, U2’s appearance on Saturday Night Live and Gavin Friday’s birthday bash (that’s the section to listen for the sound of Chris getting fired by Caroline — it’s Gavin’s 50th birthday naturally).
With the new album out, the upcoming tour, the possibility of another new album this year and Paul McGuinness single handedly saving the record industry from pirates (*cough*) what you really need is two guys named Christopher telling you their thoughts on what’s going on in the world of U2.
