Bob Geldof To Marry


Grieving is easy, recovering is where it gets tricky, and the truth is, like losing an arm, grieving, losing a loved one is a “phantom limb”, it is gone but you feel as though it is there. Losing a loved one is a phantom limb of the heart and losing a daughter… I can’t even begin to imagine that.

Sir Bob Geldof, of the Boomtown Rats and Live AID fame, lost his daughter Peaches Geldof, she was 25 years old, and you don’t really get over that but you do find a way to remain alive and to his credit Geldof seems to be doing that.

After playing a short tour with the Boomtown Rats, Geldof claimed “’Being on stage is entirely cathartic, it just clears your head… When I come off stage I’m physically exhausted and mentally clear.” And now he is marrying his long time love at the same Church he buried his daughter.

The Boomtown Rats rocker will reportedly tie the knot with the French actress Long Term Girlfriend Jeanne Marine in August in a small ceremony at St Mary Magdalene & St Lawrence church near his home in Kent, England. The venue has many connections to the Geldof family as the rocker’s marriage to Yates was blessed there in 1986 and Yates’ funeral was held in the church after her death in 2000. His late daughter Peaches wed rocker Thomas Cohen at the chapel in 2012, and a funeral service was held there last year after she died, aged 25.”

So it goes on, the wound never heals entirely, yet when life can be a reign of tragedies, you reach for happiness wherever you can find it.
