We have G3 and G4 as far as I know! I'm really excited, probably the closest I'll get to meeting him unlike some of you lucky people! Although I'd have no idea what to say to him!

Anyway, hello everyone! Thankyou for the warm welcome

Jess

I'll try and look around to where you are. It's best to think of something to say in advance otherwise nerves get the better of you (well they do me). Even then I was tongue-tied!! He's quite chatty and friendly and does his best to put you at ease.

Hehe well I don't expect to get the chance to meet him, but I will try to think of something if I do! I think just going to one of his concerts will be amazing, to be surrounded by other fans.. I don't personally know any other than myself!

I suppose it is strange being a fan at 17 - well my Dad thinks so, after hearing it all when it first came out!

you're probably right, there aren't thousands and thousands of teenage geldof-fans around...but we've got a few (actually, which agegroup is in majority?) here on the forum, you're in good company

oh, and welcome!

I made this thread sticky long ago, so that you could welcome whomever you like.


What I object to is that there are a couple of posters who persist in posting 'welcome' as a one word post whenever anyone new appears in any thread whatsoever.


Fine, welcome new posters here.  It's just that if everyone did it each time a new poster appeared, there'd be 500 one line posts following it.


And I have only ever banned two or three posters in the year and for far more serious offences than welcomes.  I just wrote they will be banished to Geldof hell.  That's something else

No hard feelings whatsoever, your opinion is valid, and I wouldn't ban you for disagreeing with me. You have never given me cause to edit any of your posts, and you are one of those whose posts are well worth reading.


As for the editing, I try not to, but I have edited a number of posts and I always give a reason in italics within the post.  If there are occasions where I have edited without reason, it is just an omission.  And if I have edited and you disagree, send me a PM.

Hello, My name is Roz, I'm a Mum of two grown up boys.I live in the North West UK and have been a fan of Bob Geldof for more years than I care to mention, although I have to say I've not seen him live. I'm always listening to music, I like anything from the 50's to the present day.

Hi and Thank you for the welcome, it's going to take me a long time to read everything on this forum but I'll gradually work my way through it.


It's good to know some Myspace friends are already here, I can see I'll have to get myself a photograph taken with Bob.... do you know if he likes squirrels ?

Hallo!
My name is Justyna, I'm from Poland. I've taken fancy of Bob Geldof 25 years ago and still I'm his big fan. In 80 was a plan that Rats came to Poland, but they didn't. I don't know why, maybe because of politics. It was strange time.
I sow HIM in TV and couldn't sleep all night (hihihihihi...). Now, I'm lost in admiration to him as a person. smile
 
I have an absolutely bored job (I'm a clerk) and ramarkably unusual teenage sonwink.

I saw Bob's gig in Berlin. It was great.  Wow!!

I would like to wish you all the Best in New Year with lot of surprices and good news of our IDOL!! 

smilesmilesmileHAPPY NEW 2008 YEAR!!!smilesmilesmile

Hi I'm Joan Of Arc, also a fan of Bob's although I've yet to see him perform live.

I'm here cos its nice to chat with people that are fans of someone that has brought so much meaning to the world of music if you get my drift.

I find so much of the music in the charts sooo meaningless and quite frankly crap!

To me most of it lacks feeling and meaning. Why are lyrics so often so shallow?

Of all the thought provoking stuff people could write about it always seems to be about the same dreary rubbishy topics. Drivel and nonsense.

So sad that this is a poor reflection on our society today.

Do they have brains at all?

Bob is a fantastic example of someone that (unusually) comes across as a feeling and compassionate human being amongst all this shallow stuff.

So anyway, thats a bit about where I am coming from.

You can see the FB and twitter pages in Brazil  www.facebook.com/BobGeldofFans and @ BobGeldofFans  on twitter. Run by fans but we get the info from Bob's management. Also his youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/bobgeldof  Hope this helps.

Hi, everyone - I'm Clare and I'm in Felixstowe. I've liked the Rats since childhood but never saw them live until they appeared in Norwich last October...I also saw them on Friday at the Chilfest. Now waiting for the Cambridge gig and it can't come quickly enough for me!

I'm also bored to death of the music which dominates the charts and seems to get all the airplay.

Welcome.  There will be at least a couple of us from the forum at Cambridge, so might see you there.  Just need to find a pub near the venue. I have to try and get there a bit earlier.   I think the only pre-gig forum meet up I ever made was in Cork, and even then, by the time I turned up most people has headed off to the venue.

 Thanks, ArrGee.  Don't know what time I'm going yet - fingers crossed the car parking will be as civilized as it was in Norwich.  It's great being able to drive to a gig AND park near it, free.

Hoping parking ok as venue is a bit out of centre, and in a sort of retail park so hopefully plenty of space.

Flying Pig pub seems ok, if it's still open.

Hiya!! I'm Louise, I'm a new'ish' fan. I first saw the mighty Bob in 1995 when he came onstage at a Bon Jovi gig, I bought Loudmouth the week after! but nothing since

... Until this year that is, I booked tickets for Guilfest just to see them and they blew me away! :) I have been listening to them solidly since and was front row at the Forum on Friday - another amazing gig and I'm now totally in Love with Bob!! haha <3 <3

RE: Hello, I'm Tom :)
Permalink  
 


My real name is Tom. I have Me and Howard Hughes in a playlist on my PC and noticed that I keep cueing it up. It really is a beautiful song with that guitar solo, bit of vibraslap, a catchy melody like Elvis and  totally wacky lyrics. Howard Hughes made some bizarre headlines when I was a teenager. My classmate did an extensive current events report on him. I wish I could have owned an aircraft company and made movies.

Anyway, Tonic for the Troops was a real treat. I still remember buying at the record store on campus in Indiana in 1980. There was a "college radio" culture back then and a  few lucky kids got to be DJs. We even had radio stations in our dorms. My roommate thought the little girl's quizzical "Are you really going out with Adolph?" was a hoot.  So, before 80s were up, I bought all their LPs released in America. 

One of my favorite memories of Bob was a news clip of him giving Thatcher some lip when they crossed paths at a party with the cameras rolling. Then there was the moment in the theater watching The Wall and saying, hey that's him !!! He was Pink. That album was one of my all time favs. I must have listened to my  tape of The Wall a hundred times. Those songs were depressing, but his revelation that Pink wanted to be a fascist leader still resonates--I am in America and the  politics is getting bad.  I took officer training in my youth. Years later, I realize I was looking for power and respect.  Now I am a borderline hippy but people say I look like a cop. It's great when people can't read you. 

I have some interest in what culture in Ireland Bob grew up in. Maybe start another thread. I am home with a cough and slacking it.  Peace and love.

Hello, I'm new :) - INTRODUCE YOURSELF HERE!
Permalink  
 


Been a Rats fan since 1978 when I heard ''Like Clockwork' on Radio 1 on a Sunday morning, and that was my introduction to an appreciation of great music. 

Went out the next day after school, got the single, got the album (ATFTT) and built up a music collection from that point. If it hadn't been for that one particular song, I think my passion for music would have developed much later. I thought ''Like Clockwork' was going to be the dog's bollocks on the album til I heard '(I never loved) Eva Braun'. Top five of all time for me.

Bought the first album while on a school trip to Edinburgh and THE greatest saxophone solo ever committed to vinyl assaulted my lug holes. Then the hauntingly melancholic 'I can make it if you can' wrapped it's arms around me and hugged me while stroking my hair and whispering, "face it, mate, you're ours".

That was late '78. Now, three kids, five granddaughters and a pissin-me-off-but-still-cute-as-a-baby's-giggle cat later, the Rats still have a place among my scheme of things. Peace

Hey, I'm Oli and i've been a HUGE rats fan for over a year now. I just got around to making an introduction (and joining the forum, really!) so my apologies for that. I'm a big fan of In The Long Grass at the moment, and my favorite Rats song is Wind Chill Factor. Big fan of Gerry Cott. I'd say i'm fairly passionate about this band, and i'm looking forward to posting here more. Cheers!
