U2 frontman Bono has branded fellow Irish Third World campaigner SIR BOB GELDOF "one of the most important people" in his life.

The WALK ON star praised the former BOOMTOWN RATS singer for his devoted charity work for AIDS and African famine victims in a candid interview with British Prime Minister Tony Blair's former press chief ALASTAIR CAMPBELL, for TV show ALASTAIR CAMPBELL INTERVIEWS BONO on Britain's CHANNEL FIVE station last night (27OCT04).

He said, "One of the most important people in my life is Bob Geldof. He doesn't know the meaning of the word no. It doesn't matter about mine or Bob's ego, its the children in the end. All the fuss doesn't matter."
