Très Bon(o) interview - You too?
In a recent appearance on The Tom Green Show, George was asked by Tom if he had a favorite interview, in which he brought up this 2003 Much Music interview.
He went on to explain getting into a cab with Bono, outside a hotel in Toronto at 7a.m., and holding a discussion in the back seat about Africa, Politics, and The Band, on the way to the airport. Dave, his cameraman and friend, was in the front with a huge beta cam, wedged in between the driver and the middle seat, to capture a rare glimpse of Paul David Hewson.
In contrast, we have seen and heard Bono relaying messages and opinions as a lead singer, a writer, a celebrity, an activist, a humanitarian.....but scarcely as an unguarded human being.
In describing the experience, George remembered kind of looking around and thinking; "Weird!"

Part 2 of 3
Personally, I have always been a colossal admirer of Bono, in all roles, and am relieved to know that the man behind the legend, seems to be who I thought he might be.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
