Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Bob Geldof formed Band Aid, orchestrated Live Aid, rallied the forces of rock performers all over the world and inspired millions to raise millions for the starving in Africa. But the song and dance about Geldof is not restricted to best-selling money-raising records and concerts: it is meeting the world's leaders and pleading with them to make food and funds available and changing their current aid policies, it is travelling in Africa and seeing famine at first-hand, and it is overseeing the disbursement of the millions that Band Aid has raised. In this vividly honest autobiography, Geldof writes of the past; an extraordinary childhood in Dublin and school-days that were both horrifying and funny; the origins of New Wave music; the beginnings, triumphs, worldwide fame, and then eclipse of the Boomtown Rats; and his films The Wall and Number One. He speaks of his years with Paula Yates. He writes of the formation of Band Aid and its achievements and he speaks of the future: musical, personal, and for Band Aid.

Rezension:

"'It's terrific... sheer Geldof, direct, loud-mouthed, honest, button-holing, obscene, compassionate, compelling... Everyone over thirteen should read it' Hunter Davies, Evening Standard 'He is funny, frank and often four-lettered - but never boring' Financial Times 'Plenty of bright, rebellious, style-setting, charismatic young men have swilled and fornicated, but not many of them have had the urge to kiss the wounded' Clive James, Observer '(It) shows that by a combination of charm, loquaciousness and irrevocable moral certainty, a wayward, catholic, hand-reared boy can shift the world on its axis' Sunday Times"
