Bob Geldof Kicked Off The Stage at The Intrinsic Conference (I don’t like Mondays, but apparently other days can end shit as well)gary
So Sir Bob Geldof got kicked off the stage at the Intrinsic annual; conference. Can’t say I’m totally surprised since he’s always been a bit of a loose cannon and occasionally seems to have more communism in him than Lenin’s mistress. But having said that I watched him do his bit at a financial expo in Manchester about 5 years ago and he was very good, talking about his business roots in Ireland and how he went door to door selling front door viewers.
Then on to how he only became the singer (maybe in the loosest sense of the word) with the Boom Town Rats because it meant he could then get another 15% of their gig fees on top of the 10% he was getting at that time as their manager. So certainly pre his messiah complex kicking in he wasn’t afraid of earning his keep?
He then finished off with a bit more of a spicy piece thanking all the financial advisers for coming and wishing them success and explaining how if they concentrated and worked hard they could make a lot of money from their profession but if they wanted to get laid they would be better off being a rock’n’roll star.
So I can see why anyone watching his performance at that time would want to book him for their conference, it’s just a pity that having evolved into a more spiritual being and existing on a far higher moral plain than us flawed humans he’s forgotten the time when all he wanted to do was entertain people, make a few bob and get his leg over.
Bless you Sir Bob
