I bet that subject got you thinking smile.gif (apologies if it has been posted elsewhere, did search)

"I Am Bob," which previously played Tribeca and Seattle's 1-Reel, is a 19-minute comedy staring Sir Bob Geldof as himself, or rather a very cranky version of himself. Accidentally stranded in a remote British village pub, the Live Aid founder finds himself taking part in a celebrity look-alike contest against a younger, more enthusiastic impersonator. The two Bobs duet on the Boomtown Rats 1979 classic "I Don't Like Mondays" and then square off on a Geldof trivia contest in which fake Bob does better than the real deal. Not to give the ending away, but a surly Sir Bob doesn't win over the hearts and minds of the locals.

EXCLUSIVE! The Daily Star journalist spotted!  And I thought they just sat in their office and made it all up.  Well, it reads that way

Sir Bob falls out with the Star
Sir Bob Geldof
apparently cancelled an entire press conference for his new film comedy I Am Bob when he realised the Daily Star had been invited. According to the red-top today, Mr Geldof is engaged in a running feud with the paper over a "string of brilliant scoops about his hellraising daughter".

Probably most angered about the reports of her saying The Boomtown Rats weren't that good, the ungrate! <though sadly that was true I heard it from the horse's mouth on the Orange playlist - my HDD recorder got that but not the Rock Goes to College gig; not saying Peaches is a horse.  When in a hole stop digging.>

And Bob has been saying for years that his daughters hate his music. he talked about this on Parky and laughed about it.

It must be good. It won the audience award at the Milan Film festival this year. I hope we can eventually buy it. Hoping it will come to Edinburgh IFF next year.

Regarding the "mondays" song, ... From john turnbull
"Alan and I only did the soundtrack..with Pete ...I sang the song so the cast could learn how to sing it ,then Alan and Donalds sister and I sang backing vocals...Al played piano. I did a bit of guitar too."
So the whole band had a part in the production, (except Vince I think.)
