U2 frontman BONO had to separate SIR BOB GELDOF from TONY BLAIR to prevent him from spitting at the British Prime Minister. The crusading rocker came to the rescue after Geldof's discussion with the UK leader became so heated, he feared a saliva shower was on the way. He says, "I had to call him off Mr Blair. Literally spittle coming out, invective coming out, and Tony reaching over to me saying, 'I believe you've a greatest hits coming,' just to get a break from Geldof. "I have seen Geldof try to bite prime ministers. I accept the rules of ultimate fighting, which are: you can't poke someone in the eye or bite them, and Bob doesn't."

Doctors Without Borders called Bono & Geldoff's 1985 Live Aid, "the worst thing that could have happened to Ethiopia", because the money was given to the Ethiopian dictator who used it to buy weapons, extending the civil war and killing hundreds of thousands. These "do gooders" proved that stupidity trumps nice intentions and enables evil...they should NOT be deified, Bono and Geldoff should be shunned for funding murder!

Criticize Bono all you like -- the more you talk the more Africa's problems are recognized, whether you are for or against, the subject itself gets attention. I doubt if Bono cares what negative people think of him -- his purpose is not popularity but to do some good in this sorry world..

What a load of sad old negatives, Except for the wonderful Smokey, what Bob did and is still doing is like a bright light in this world without heroes. His private life has nothing to do with it - we all make mistakes - why not help him and become a part of the good things that are beginning to happen.

From this description, i can better understand the poor INXS lead singer's depression and suicide - he said that Geldof's continuing interferance with his marriage to Geldof's ex-wife drove him to despair - then after he killed himself, the wife followed suit, leaving four children orphaned. Geldof sounds like a wolf in sheep's clothing....
