Geldof and Bono Like Brothers

Some randomness from contactmusic.com

Rock campaigner SIR BOB GELDOF is so close to his fellow charity campaigner BONO, he has likened their relationship to "brothers". The former BOOMTOWN RAT and U2 frontman, who are both members of the campaign group Debt, Aid, Trade And Africa, have come together in their desire to make world leaders boost aid and provide fair trade to poverty-stricken African nations. Geldof says, "We talk non-stop at each other, pretending we're listening. We then feign agreement on a given strategy, and then go and do different things, under the false impression the other is all for it. "As a result we drive each other mad. But it works. "As the showbiz line goes: he's my brother, but he ain't at all heavy. He's great."


"Pretending we're listening." Yeah, that sounds about like family.

Oh thanks for that Mot! Mind if we post some Bono & Bob pics? I always like pics of them together...they've been friends a long time. Maybe someone has some I don't have.

Strange, I still remember the Ratts' PV 'DAVE' quite well, though it was not my favourite song at that time.

I know where his mind is:

: Why does Bob have to be so tall? It's not fair
