BIOGRAPHY:

Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2003 for his successful efforts to relieve third world debt and promote AIDS awareness in Africa. Received the rank of Chevalier dans l'Ordre de la Legion d'Honneur (Knight in the Order of the Legion of Honor) from French President Jacques Chirac on February 28, 2003.


TRIVIA:
  • Bono's silhouette is used as the icon for the "Artists" tab of the music component of the iPhone and iPod Touch.
  • He has written songs either for, or with, 'Frank Sinatra' (qv), 'Johnny Cash (I)' (qv), 'Keith Richards (II)' (qv), 'Luciano Pavarotti' (qv), 'Sinéad O'Connor' (qv), and 'Howie B.' (qv) among several others.
  • Was named by TIME Magazine as one of their 'Persons of the Year' for 2005 along with 'Bill Gates (I)' (qv) and 'Melinda Gates' (qv).
  • 'U2 (I)' (qv) won the 2001 Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution.
  • (21 May 2001) Wife Alison gave birth to their 4th child, John Abraham Hewson, 7 pounds 7 oz, in Dublin Ireland. Now has 2 daughters and 2 sons.
  • Mother's name was Iris.
  • Two notable fellow musicians were consoled by his band's music during their final moments. Jazz legend 'Miles Davis (I)' (qv) developed a fascination with their 1984 album "The Unforgettable Fire" and listened to it repeatedly during the last few months of his life. U2's 2000 song "In A Little While" was the last song ever heard by punk rocker 'Joey Ramone' (qv), who sang along with the lyrics with his family.
  • Sings the line 'well tonight, thank God it's them, instead of you' in the Band Aid 20 2004 cover of "Do They Know It's Christmas", the exact same line he sang on the original version back in 1984.
