Bono the frontman for U2 turns 53 today. Born Paul Hewson in Dublin, Ireland. Bono writes nearly all the lyrics for U2. U2 released their first album in 1980 and have released a total of 12 studio albums over the years. Bono has been one of the great humanitarians of the day. He is known especially for his activism for Africa. Along with Bill and Melinda Gates he was named Time Magazine’s “Person Of The Year” in 2005. U2 in my opinion is one of the greatest bands of all times. I’ve seen them a few times in concert. Bono and the boys never disappoint.
