Happy Birthday Bob Geldof, here’s the Boomtown Rats!

Boomtown Rats, Rat Trap

Bob Geldof turns 55 today, and boy, has he been busy? He’s ranted at Maggie Thatcher, saved Africa, sired Peaches and Pixie Geldof, sung a few songs, rarely visited a salon, probably never been to a health spa. Yes, the man has done it all. Hence, we thought we’d get him a gift, so we went in search of Peaches to ask advice, only to call time on the plan after exactly nine seconds, when we realised that just hearing her voice might conceivably bring on an early bout of Winter flu. So instead we decided on either a box of matches, or an old Boomtown Rats number from 1978. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Prince Bob!
