Bob Geldof, frequently misspelled as Geldorf, is an Irish musician and actor born on October 5, 1951.
He was originally a member of the Boomtown Rats, which had a big hit titled "I Don't Like Mondays", which he wrote. He went on to write "Do They Know It's Christmas?", which is one of the best selling singles of all time because of its connection to charity. Geldof has always been a voice for the downtrodden and opressed. He was a founder of Band Aid, Live Aid, and Live 8, all of which brought in millions of dollars to charities for famine and hunger relief.
In 1982, Geldof starred in the movie adaption of Pink Floyd's The Wall, contributing new vocals to some of the songs and helping it to become a cult favorite. His interpretation of the main character as he slowly loses his grip on reality was a stunning work of art.
He was awarded an honorary knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II for his contributions to music and charity.
