On Nov. 25, 1984, dozens of the biggest U.K. musicians — past and present — gathered in Trevor Horn's London studio under the moniker Band Aid to record the now-classic holiday song 'Do They Know It's Christmas?'
Peaches Geldof was found dead in April at the age of just 25.
Peaches Geldof, the daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, was found dead in her home in Kent, England today (April 7). She was 25.
While Bob Geldof's philanthropic efforts remain his greatest contribution to humanity, it should also be remembered that he was also the frontman for the Boomtown Rats, who had a string of hits in their native Ireland and throughout the U.K. from the mid '70s to the early '80s. Their biggest, 'I Don't Like Mondays,' was inspired by a school shooting that took place on Jan. 29, 1979.
It's widely regarded as one of the biggest music events in history, but Bob Geldof has mixed feelings about the 1985 charity bash 'Live Aid.'
