Before going solo and celebrating commercial success with his own music, he was most notably known as a band member of various 1970s and 1980s bands.

His songwriting and music skills were already off the hook early on, as he and Bob Geldof co-wrote the smashing super hit "Do They Know It’s Christmas?" in 1984 to react to the Ethiopian famine. The two songwriters were also the ones who put Band Aid together by plucking the best British and Irish music acts of the time. Their song rocketed up in the UK charts to no. 1, where it stayed for five weeks; it quickly became the fastest-selling single in UK history and made it into the top ten of the Billboard 100.
