Is That It?; An Autobiography

by Bob Geldof, Paul Vallely
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Geldof wants us to know that although he may have been the organizational genius behind the humanitarian Live Aid concert, he's no saint. His autobiography is a self-deprecating, forthright, touching account of a rakehell's life transformed by zeal for the noblest of causes. Born in working class Dublin and raised in a punitive Catholic regimen, he early on rebelled, led a vagabond existence, flirting with sex, drugs, and suicide, and finally found his niche as lead singer for the New Wave band the Boomtown Rats. His career was given new meaning when, shocked by a TV story on the famine in Africa, he directed his charismatic energy toward relief for the Ethiopians. Manipulating his contacts in the music industry, he put together the greatest single conglomeration of talent in pop history. Geldof is living proof of rock music's highest potential. Highly recommended. Paul Feehan, Univ. of Miami Lib., Coral Gables, Fla.
