Bob Geldof has demanded that one of his former Boomtown Rats bandmates put his house on the line, as they’ve become embroiled in a royalty battle in court.

The battle is over their greatest hit, I Don’t Like Mondays, which is credited to Bob alone, however – the band’s former pianist Johnnie Fingers has claimed that he co-wrote the hit.

Johnnie, real name John Moylett, has insisted that he contributed the piano intro and lyrics “Down, down, shoot it all down”, and claimed that Bob pressured him into not seeking a song writing credit after promising him a share.

Therefore, the pianist is seeking a part of the royalties from the song, which was released in 1979.
