Hats off to Bono! it looks like he will follow no more, at least not in terms of financial portfolios, thanks to some shrewd investment in Facebook. The U2 frontman is one of many who cash in once Facebook goes public Friday (May 18) with their Initial Public (Stock) Offering (IPO).
It's St. Patrick's Day (March 17), and we've chosen to honor the occasion with a special Readers' Poll dedicated to the classic rock musicians who call the Emerald Isle home. (O.K., to be fair, we may also raise a pint of Guinness or two!)
From early 2005 to late 2009, U2 grossed boatloads of money from their Vertigo Tour and every-bit-as-massive 360 Degree Tour.
At the same time, bassist Adam Clayton claims he was losing big bucks, too. Clayton says his personal assistant back then misappropriated $7.5 million of his hard-earned money, and now Clayton is suing all of the parties believed to be involved.
A mega rare U2 'With Or Without You' 7" vinyl single is of mega value, at least to one bidder. This Ecuadorian (South American) pressing of the 'Joshua Tree' hit has the title in both Spanish and English on the label and recently sold via eBay in the generic factory sleeve that it was released in.
As 2011 draws to a close, Billboard has released its list of the year's top-grossing tours -- and while veteran acts didn't dominate the box office as heavily as they have in recent years, plenty of classic rockers spent the year playing to sold out arenas.
We didn't think of this one until just recently, but apparently Robin Williams has been dealing with being mistaken as Bono for quite awhile. It only happens when people have taken "a lot of medication" or are "completely s---faced," insists the comedian, but we fall into neither category right now and we can't but help notice his remarkable resemblance to the the U2 singer.
After 35 years and more than 150 million records sold as the lead singer of U2, Bono has one of the most recognizable voices in rock music -- but that doesn't mean he actually enjoys the sound of it himself.
