Before he became known for his charitable work with Live Aid, Bob Geldof was the lead singer of the Boomtown Rats, though Pink Floyd fans remember him best as “Pink”, the self abusing delusional rocker in their film, The Wall. Although the film remains iconic, and the album it is based on is considered a masterpiece, we did not see that much of “Pink’s” ability as a rock star, and as such this could be a candidate that might be overlooked.

The Bullet Points:
Movie Appeared:
Pink Floyd – The Wall (1982)

Bob Geldof

Songs you might remember:
In the Flesh?

Why you should vote for him:
This is based on one of (arguably) the greatest albums of all time.

Why you should not vote for him:
This film could have been done a different way, without a Rock and Roll protagonist.



With a huge body of work of Pop songs that scream of female empowerment, Pink may have actually been at her best when she was not as manufactured and embraced her R&B beginnings or forayed into Rock styles. With a lot more work left in her, she is on the outside track for a Hall slot but a lot will depend on what directions her progression takes her too.
