Bob Geldof was the leader of the successful punk group the Boomtown Rats. He is perhaps most famous for his humanitarian efforts. Inspired by a documentary on starving Ethiopian children, Geldof contacted music personalities from the U.K. and the U.S. to make a recording, "Do They Know It's Christmas," whose 80 million dollars in benefits were sent to Ethiopia. In 1985, he organized two enormous Live Aid concerts, again featuring some of the most popular acts in modern pop music, and donated the proceeds to charity. As a result, Geldof received a Nobel Peace Prize nomination. He was also knighted. Though not an actor, Geldof has appeared occasionally in films such as Pink Floyd: The Wall (1982), and contributed to a number of msuic documentaries over the years.
