I'm currently hearin: "Party Girl" U2

I too loved Bono's interview on The O'Reilly Factor, but Bill kept calling Bob "Geldorf". Isn't it Geldof??

It drove me nuts.

thats what i thought. my sister called me right after that and was like "it's geldof, what the hell?" and i laughed and told her that bill oreilly just isn't as cultured or cool as bono..and THATS why he didn't know it.

I haven't seen the interview (curse living in Australia!), but could it have just been from his accent?

no, it was bill who said it wrong, but you may have already gotten that by the fact that some are correcting the others for me. :)

I didn't watch it because I had things to do that prevented it, but I imagine it was his accent. I'm sure Bono knows how to pronounce "Geldof", considering how long they've been friends. ;)

Damn, sorry for spacing out on the fact that you said it was Bill who mispronounced it. I've been really distracted lately... I'm embarrassed. ;)

that's what i thought. i'm a journalism major and my first concern is getting names and places right. and my first name is Suzanne (pronounced SoozANNE) and i am always being called Susan. Susan is not my name...and so maybe when other's names are said wrong, it irks me.
