Happy birthday, U2 singer Bono

It is the birthday of Irish singer Bono (1960), who is known as the lead singer for the rock band U2. Bono, whose real name is Paul David Hewson, formed the Dublin-based rock band with fellow students while in secondary school (high school). Bono has received an honorary knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II and a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize for his humanitarian efforts in Africa. Critics have dubbed the group's hit song I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For (1987), one of the greatest tracks in music history. The song was decidedly a group effort but the lyrics were contributed by Bono, who recalled a line he had written in a notebook as a possible song title. Bono acknowledges influences of songwriter Bob Dylan and gospel blues singer Blind Willie Johnson.
