He's more famous though for being the lead singer of The Boomtown Rats, and co-founding Band Aid, Live Aid and Live 8. Through those, he's helped raise hundreds of millions of pounds for charity.

I understand that, but The Wall is a fairly well known movie. For those who can't connect his face with the benefit work he has done, connecting with the character we see frequently in that movie may help jog their memory.

 

For those big events, it is more common to remember the bands than the people who moved mountains behind the scenes to make the event happen.

He's also the main reason Pink Floyd reunited and performed in 2005 at Live 8 too.

Hmm.. Never heard of her. She was pretty hot though. She looked pretty thin in his other photos like she was on something.

It's a shame... But I sorta always knew she'd go like her mother did. I wouldn't want to say with certainty that it's drugs related but healthy 25 year olds don't usually tend to fall over dead. Having said that, look at Britney Murphy.

 

Or an unknown / undetected aneurysm, but agree that drugs could be a factor.

No.  It doesn't happen "a lot" at all.

For all you people who don't know who her family is :

 

Her Dad was Bob Geldof, famous for organizing and promoting Live Aid for Africa. a dual-venue concert held on 13 July 1985. He also wrote and sang with a group of peformers including Michael Jackson, "We are the Children" with all proceeds going to Ethiopia famine.

 

Point of correction - He wrote (with Midge Ure) and sang on 'Do they know it's Christmas' which was the song that kickstarted the whole Live Aid movement. Lionel Ritchie and Michael Jackson wrote 'We are the World' as the US response when they saw that these things really boosted your career...
