Bono on Desert Island Discs

Watching 80-year-old Paul McCartney command a massive crowd at Glastonbury over the weekend offers a reminder that, nowadays, live music is no longer the preserve of the young.

Bono will likely have been tuning in too – U2, famously, headlined the great English music festival in 2011 – and he will have been heartened to see a man 18 years his senior rolling the years back so impressively.
