Bob Geldoff has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Apparently the award can be given to any person who organizes a whole bunch of charity concerts that raise no money. On the other hand, I see that album sales for all the participating bands have gone up. So the concert certainly helped SOMEONE. The good people of Africa have finally kickstarted the flagging fortunes of Pink Floyd. That's worth a Nobel, right?
I also see that Coldplay's Chris Martin called Live 8 "the greatest thing that's ever been organized, probably, in the history of the world."
He'll be nominated for a Nobel by 2009. Just you watch.
