In 1979, they gained international attention with their second UK No. Geldof became known as a colourful interview subject.
The Boomtown Rats' first appearance on Ireland's The Late Late Show saw Geldof as deliberately brusque to host Gay Byrne and during his interview he attacked Irish politicians and the Catholic Church, which he blamed for many of the country's problems.
In July 2006, Geldof arrived at Milan's Arena Civica, a venue capable of holding 12,000 people, to play a scheduled concert to find that the organisers had not put the tickets on general sale and that only 45 people had shown up.
Geldof was appointed an honorary knight by Elizabeth II, and is a recipient of the Man of Peace title which recognises individuals who have made "an outstanding contribution to international social justice and peace", among numerous other awards and nominations.
Geldof's first major charity involvement took place in September 1981, when he performed as a solo artist for Amnesty International's benefit show The Secret Policeman's Other Ball, at the invitation of Amnesty show producer Martin Lewis; he performed a solo version of "I Don't Like Mondays".
Other rock artists had 'planted a seed' and appeared to have affected Geldof in a similar manner.
When Geldof was six or seven, his mother, Evelyn, 41, died of a cerebral haemorrhage.
Bob Geldof attended Blackrock College, where he was bullied for being a poor rugby player and for his middle name, Zenon.
