I think Bono's ego outgrew rock 'n' roll and it needed an even bigger audience.

Bono's ego has it's own gravitational pull.

Well it might be a time to end this topic.

Seems like we have a few different views on why Bono has his current the public profile, and, as probably expected these are mainly due to his activism/political activities and the (it must be said - not fully known) tax status.

I didn't start this topic to create an argument, i was just shocked at the number of t-shirts available with negative Bono comments. And of course anything that affects Bono, affects the band, in turn affects their music so is relevant to us fans.

This isn't an argument; this is scientific fact.

Remember those guys who were trying to bring a potato gun to Glastonbury to pelt Bono while U2 were performing? The joke would've been on them, since any object shot at Bono's head would just be pulled into its gravitational pull and start rotating around it.

Only if it had hit at the correct angle with the appropriate velocity.

That theory was heavily refuted, 26 seconds into this performance:

Although this was Elevation-era Bono... so his ego was probably at it's lowest power.  :D
