Grieving rocker Bob Geldof has told of his “intolerable” pain over the death of his daughter Peaches in his first television interview since the tragedy.
The Boomtown Rats frontman was left devastated when the 25-year-old was found dead at her home in Kent, England in April after taking heroin.
Speaking with British TV host Lorraine Kelly on Friday, Geldof said he has suffered immense heartache over the tragedy but is determined to try to move forward with his life.
He also revealed his grief often hits him in public and he has to hide away from prying eyes while he sheds a tear.
Geldof says, “It’s intolerable… it’s very hard as everybody must realise, especially if it happened to them too, and what else do you do? You get on with it…
“The default position for me is, ‘Right, things have to be organised,’ and I go in organisation mode, but like anybody else these things assault you without warning.
“You could be talking to somebody, you could be walking down the road, and I’ve got to be very careful because this is still very raw… but I’m walking down the road and suddenly out of the blue there’s an awareness of her… and you know, I buckle and I’ve got to be very careful because walking down the Kings Road there are paps everywhere so I have to duck off into a lane or something, and blub for a while and then get on with it and that’s it. So I’d imagine that will be there for a long time – I mean, what else?”
Geldof also revealed the family has been inundated with messages of support following the tragedy, adding, “We were overwhelmed by people writing to us in the kindest way, obviously complete strangers but who felt it. The nice thing about that was that this young girl had made such an impact, especially on her generation.”
