35 years after Live Aid, Bob Geldof assesses personal toll

Inquirer Breaking News - 8 hours 22 min ago
NEW YORK --- The legendary Live Aid concerts 35 years ago did a lot of good --- helping reduce African famine and putting a spotlight on the world's poorest nations. But it wasn't always good for one of its key organizers. Irish rock star Bob Geldof may have earned awards and cheers for pulling off 1985s transcontinental music event, though it took a toll on his personal life and career.

"I became Saint Bob," Geldof told The Associated Press in an interview earlier this year. He said he wasn't happy about the glory that came with his charity work. "I ...
