Taking pride in the name of our greatest rock star – Bono
IT would be easy to take Bono for granted. Perhaps all that fame, glory and – let's be fair – brilliance, spanning three decades, has made some of us immune to his charms. It's inevitable that the rock star with the wraparound shades and penchant for political evangelism has come to be seen as something of a self-parody.
But that would be to miss the point.
Firstly, it can't be denied that U2 are one of the superpowers of rock. Few bands can match their genius for stadium rock and the pick of their albums – 'The Joshua Tree' and 'Achtung Baby', to name but two – are among the finest in the genre.
