Bob Geldof - Geldof: 'Marine Is The Love Of My Life'

BOB GELDOF has hailed his partner JEANNE MARINE as his saviour after she rescued him from periods of "dark" desperation and revived his "non-existent heart".
The Boomtown Rats frontman was thrown into a downward spiral after his ex-wife Paula Yates died from a drugs overdose in 2000, but he credits French actress Marine with bringing him back from the brink.
He tells Britain's Uncut magazine, "She's the love of my life, she's amazing. She saved me, without any question. Things were very touch and go in the Geldof heart - the apparently non-existent heart. There'd been long, long dark nights of the soul."
And the rocker admits his lover even inspired him to make his latest album, How To Compose Popular Songs That Will Sell, more romantic: "There's a clear understanding on the new record, finally, that, 'I'm in love with you tonight.' It's been the best decade, until this year, because demons have been long laid to rest. And then you approach the autumn, and I'm certainly in that. Now, maybe I can write love songs."
