Bob Geldof
Gay Byrne has interviewed Bob Geldof many times, but having recently turned 60, the original Boomtown Rat was particularly revealing in this interview about the people, things and ideas which have given his life meaning.

He insists there's no God, nor even a God-shaped hole. Rage is still his "great animus", compounded by the nagging pain of accumulated grief. But he's also found happiness - a shock even to himself, which he describes in language as colourfully and brilliantly articulate as ever.
