Bob Geldof

He can talk for England and probably the world, but you have probably never heard Bob Geldof talk like this before.

In his most candid interview yet, Sir Bob told Gary Crowley about his chequered life in the crazy business that is the music industry.

His years in the Boomtown Rats, the charity spectacular that was Live Aid and his fits-and-starts solo career were all touched on as the two locked horns in the 94.9 studios.

Bob also talked about his time with Paula Yates, the break up of their marriage and her tragic death.
