Gary Moore on Geldof.... "he couldn't get arrested as a musician" (more complementary than you expect)
Permalink  
 


What did Gary Moore do with Geldof ?   I know Geldof was on stage with him for Self Aid ( they did Whiskey in the Jar), but did the collaborate on anything?

The article is predominately about Phil Lynott, but had little snippets on Bono & Dylan as well.

Long hailed as a guitar great, Gary has gone on to work with everyone from Bob Geldof to Bob Dylan. And he won't hear a word against Geldof.....

"There's a lot of cynicism about those guys, but not many people would do what they've done. When Bob Geldof did the original Live Aid in the 80s, he effectively killed his music career. The guy gave up more than he realised - he couldn't get arrested as a musician after that. But he did so much good at that time, but everyone thought, 'Well, we won't take him seriously as a singer anymore ? '

"That was it, he was Saint Bob and he was stuck with that whole thing. Still to this day that's what people associate him with more than anything he ever did with The Boomtown Rats or as a solo artist, which is a shame because Bob wrote some really great songs in his time and he was quite a good bona fide rock star - he had the moves, the look and everything - and The Boomtown Rats were a pretty good band.
