Bono, lead singer of U2, is one of my most highly respected people. U2 happens to be my favorite band as well. This article is about him meeting with US Defense Secretary Gates to discuss issues regarding Africa. He lobbies around the world for helping the people of Africa fight poverty, AIDS and persuading governments to forgo African debt.
I admire him because he uses his fame and wealth to actually do something important. As this article states, it was not a publicized meeting. The media didnt know about it until after he left D.C. So Bono is not doing this to sell albums. He is genuine in everything he does.
