If nothing else for his work in changing the way artists within the industry interact with the world. Bono would be nothing without this man.

Live Aid anyone?

He has a good chance of getting in the rock and roll hall of fame as a Non-Performer because of organizing Live Aid Band Aid and Live 8. But not as a Performer.

Live Aid was unquestionably one of the great moments for rock and roll, but it was really George Harrison who invented the charity concert thirteen years before.

Geldof and the Boomtown Rats don't really have enough musically to be worthy of induction. Geldof, I would call a prime candidate for the non-performer category. Though I wouldn't mind seeing Artie Kornfeld getting inducted in the non-performer category.
