Sir-Bob-Geldof-and-daughter-PeachesLos Angeles:�Singer Bob Geldof says he considered suicide after the death of his daughter Peaches. The 64-year-old was left devastated following the death of the TV presenter, who died from a drugs overdose in 2014 at the age of 25, and while in mourning he started to make lists of the "upsides" and "downsides" of being alive, but a phone conversation with a friend ultimately saved him, reports mirror.co.uk. �I'd make lists and keep working at the writing of those lists until the upside overwhelmed the downside. In my case I wrote down, 'What's the upside of being alive?' and 'What's the downside of it?' Was it ever really serious? Overall, no. In that moment, though, perhaps it was,� Geldof told Sunday Independent. �I had the sanity, luckily, to phone a friend and tell him, 'Look I think I'm just starting to get rationally irrational.' He almost slapped my face (with his tone) and said, 'Don't do anything f*****g stupid, stay exactly where you are' and came around very quickly. People talk you through these things,� he added.
