Between U2 and Charity



Bono realizes his charity activities brought tensions in his band, U2

Known for his dedication in fighting against poverty through his charitable works, such as in Make Poverty History campaign and frequently made on-stage statements about global poverty during his band's concerts, Bono came to a realization that his campaigning had sometimes "raised eyebrows" among his fellow U2 members. "When I do my rant on making poverty history, I have got Larry Mullen, our drummer, behind me looking at his watch, timing me," he remarked.

Concerning with this matter, Bono apparently feared that this commitment of him might as well force him out of his band. "They (the band) are hugely supportive spiritually and financially of the work I do, but they are in a rock 'n 'roll band, and the first job of a rock 'n 'roll band is not to be dull," so he said to BBC Radio. "So we have to be very careful about just letting me go too far," he added.
