BOB GELDOF
Signed b/w Paul Smith publicity photo of Geldof from the knees up in a t-shirt, suspenders and dark striped slacks and swinging a ping pong paddle
Photograph signed "Bob Geldof". b/w, 8x10 overall, 7¼x9¼ image, one surface. Photo credit for Paul Smith stamped on verso in black ink. ©Paul Smith. Caption taped on verso: "Bob GELDORF, pop singer./1982." Geldof, born in Dún Laoghaire, Ireland in 1951, is singer and songwriter best known for his involvement in some of the biggest musical charity projects of the 1980s, including Live Aid and Band Aid. He first appeared on the radar in 1975 when he joined the new wave band The Boomtown Rats, which had five top 10 hits in the United Kingdom, including the one that brought them international fame, 1979's I Don't Like Mondays. Geldof got seriously involved with charity work when he performed at a 1981 concert for Amnesty International as a solo artist. Three years later, he teamed up with Midge Ure to co-write the song Do They Know It's Christmas?, sung by the Irish and British supergroup Band Aid, after seeing a news report on a severe famine in Ethiopia. The two joined forces again to organize Live Aid, a 1985 music festival held simultaneously in London and Philadelphia that raised over £150 million for famine relief and which earned Geldof a knighthood. Geldof kept his focus on Africa and teamed up with Ure one more time in 2005 to organize Live 8. This was a series of 11 concerts held in nine countries on or around the 20th anniversary of Live Aid, in order to pressure the G8 nations into increasing aid to poor nations, including those of Africa, and dropping their debt. He was also a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 and 2008. Pink Floyd fans may recognize him in a much different role: the slowly disintegrating rock god Pink from the movie adaptation of Pink Floyd's The Wall (1982). Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Tape holding caption on verso is lightly discolored (no show-through). Otherwise in fine condition.
