[ # ] Bob Geldof slams Al Gore’s Live Earth
May 13th, 2007 under Bob Geldof

Bob Geldof is rumored to have gone off on Al Gore's Live Earth in a Dutch Newspaper according to AP. In the interview Geldof said,  "I hope they're a success. But why is (Gore) actually organizing them? To make us aware of the greenhouse effect? Everybody's known about that problem for years. We are all (expletive) conscious of global warming," he added. "I would only organize (Live Earth) if I could go on stage and announce concrete environmental measures from the American presidential candidates, Congress or major corporations. They haven't got those guarantees, so it's just an enormous pop concert or the umpteenth time that, say, Madonna or Coldplay get up on stage." Not only did he knock the concert he also knocked the name, "It sounds like Live 8," he told the paper. "We're getting lots of responses from people who think we are organizing it."

To me it sounds like Geldof is jealous that he was not asked to be part of it and that someone else was able to plan a worldwide benefit concert with better names. Let's be real what the heck was Live 8 all about? To make a statement to the G8 Summit? What the heck is G8 Summit? What did his concert do? And who benefited from it? Live 8 was all about Geldof's ego.

Bob Geldof needs to brush his hair and get over himself.
