Bono is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. He is best known as the lead vocalist and primary lyricist of rock band U2 whose real name is Paul David Hewson, born in 1960.
Bono was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. He attended Mount Temple Comprehensive School where he met his future wife, Alison Stewart, as well as schoolmates with whom he founded U2 in 1976. Bono soon established himself as a passionate frontman for the band through his expressive vocal style and grandiose gestures and songwriting. His lyrics are known for their social and political themes, and for their religious imagery inspired by his Christian beliefs. During U2’s early years, Bono’s lyrics contributed to the group’s rebellious and spiritual tone. As the band matured, his lyrics became inspired more by personal experiences shared with the other members.
“Bono Vox” is an alteration of Bonavox, a Latin phrase which translates to “good voice”. It is said he was nicknamed “Bono Vox” by his friend Gavin Friday. Eventually he dropped the “Vox”.
On September 26, 1976, Bono, David Evans (“The Edge”), his brother Dik and Adam Clayton responded to an advertisement on a bulletin board at Mount Temple posted by fellow student Larry Mullen Jr. to form a rock band. They went by the name “Feedback”, but eventually changed the name to U2.
U2 have released 14 studio albums and are one of the world’s best-selling music artists in history, having sold an estimated 150–170 million records worldwide. They have won 22 Grammy Awards, more than any other band, and in 2005, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility.
Countless hits: “With Or Without You”, “One”, “Beautiful Day”, “Sunday Bloody Sunday”, “Where The Streets Have No Name”, “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”, “Pride (In The Name Of Love)”, “Vertigo”, “New Year’s Day” and “Mysterious Ways” to name but a few.
Bono is almost never seen in public without sunglasses, as he suffers from glaucoma.
He and his wife have 4 children.
