Here's what Bono thinks of Bono
Brace yourselves.

BONO IS BEING interviewed tonight on RTE One by Gay Byrne.

This interview marks the 30 year anniversary since U2 first did the Late Late alongside Gaybo. Down through the years, we’ve watched U2 develop into a global supergroup and Bono devolve into a figure we all love to loathe.

Here are some of the best things Bono has ever said – in interviews, onstage and in his own lyrics. We can only hope he pulls out a few of these bon mots tonight during the interview.

Who is he again?

Oh, yeah.

And why does he wear those shades?

EMPICS Entertainment

Oh, right.

How did he get into music, anyway?

Suzan/EMPICS Entertainment

If only, eh?

And how come he does all this charity malarkey?

Haydn West ./PA Archive/Press Association Images

I see.

What kind of accent is he rocking these days?

Peter Byrne/PA Archive/Press Association Images

Distinctly trans-Atlantic.

Does he come out with any aul guff?

All Action/EMPICS Entertainment

Sure does.

Any last words from Bono?

WERNER SLOCUM/AP/Press Association Images

Um, alright.

Well, if you’re not finished listening to Bono wax lyrical and can’t tune into RTE tonight, check out him reciting some Bukowski. It’s extremely painful viewing, so be warned.
