Title: Bono's CV / Resume
Post by: laoghaire on August 08, 2018, 04:09:22 PM
Bono's CV would be rather impressive. But it would also contain a lot of really unusual roles/skills. Let's brainstorm!

For starters, it occurs to me that "Professional harmonica player" would be a legitimate line.

He could also be described as having professional levels of skill - honestly, among the elite of the world - opening champagne bottles.

Exactly what role did he play in the formation of PEPFAR?

What else? Achievements, skills, roles?

Hmm, dead thread. I'll add:

Bono doesn't have a college or university degree besides what was awarded to him by Harvard. Ok, let's have some fun.

1. Published lyricist
2. Poet
3. Philanthropist
4. Founder of the ONE foundation
5. Feminist
6. Investor
7. Capitalist
8. Influential and has enough clout to be seen and heard by President's, Prime Minister's, World leaders and alike.
9. Married, with 4 children, highly successful, artist, highly influenced by his childhood and wants to see a better world.
10. Has been known to walk the streets and play his guitar for change for the heck of it.
11. Seems grateful for what life has given him.

Yup! That I knew b/c the Twitter page of (I think) Sherry from here atu2.com, if I have her name wrong I apologize, has pictures up of Bono and some chef, and a bunch of yummy food. And wine, red and white.

**It's on the atu2 Twitter page. **

Probably the only man ever nominated for a Grammy, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and a Nobel Peace Prize. (Won the Grammy and the Golden Globe.)

I've joked on this forum that he desrves on Oscar but had no idea he was an actual nominee. What for? And what about the Golden Globe?

They’ve been nominated for an Oscar twice for best original song in a movie and for a Golden Globe more times than that. Won the Golden Globe twice but not the Oscar.

I agree that Bono should further stuff his over-crowded CV and do some more acting. He would be fantastic. The only thing I’ve ever seen him in where he didn’t play himself was Across the Universe. Mostly he sang a Beatles cover, but he did a bit of acting too, as a 60s acid guru.
