Bob Geldof - Bob Geldof doesn't give kids advice

Bob Geldof doesn't give his children musical advice.

The 61-year-old rocker - who rose to fame as a member of the Boomtown Rats - thinks his daughters, including Fifi Trixiebelle, 30, Peaches, 24, and Pixie, 22, should follow their own paths and while Pixie has followed in his footsteps in a band called Violet, he doesn't interfere with her career.

He explained to Classic Rock magazine: ''I couldn't possibly advise. It's not my place. I wouldn't know what to say. Some of my kids are in bands and I think they're good, excellent even, but I let 'em get on with it. Whether it's a career or something that just compels them, I don't really know.''

Bob insists being a rock star is a fun line of work when you're young, but admits fame can have its downsides.

He said: ''It's the best possible job on the planet. Let me recommend it to any youngster. Fame's a different matter. I wanted to use fame as a platform to illustrate things that bothered me, in songs like 'Looking After Number One' or whatever.''
