Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, Paul "Bono" Hewson was still in his teens when he answered an ad posted on a school bulletin board to join a fledgling rock band. It became one of the most original, best-loved rock groups of all time: U2. Bono's passionate vocals are heard on landmark albums. The band recorded albums including The Joshua Tree and The Unforgettable Fire and on anthemic singles such as "Bloody Sunday" and "In the name of Love." For many, U2's success came to symbolize a new prominence for Ireland in Europe and the world. Over the years, Bono and U2 have lent their support to African famine relief, to Amnesty International and to the campaign against apartheid. U2 still fills arenas all over the world and Bono has continued to speak out for Third World debt forgiveness and to raise global awareness of the AIDS epidemic ravaging Africa. Articulate and scrupulously well-informed, Bono has earned a unique credibility with world leaders.
