Bono turned guest newspaper editor on Tuesday May 16th with the Independent agreeing to give half its revenues for the day to fight AIDS in Africa
Generous rock star Bono gave hand at something new when he on Tuesday turned guest newspaper editor, a profession he never did before. Though so, it's worth judging from its cost which is half revenues from the Independent for the day to fight AIDS in Africa.
Undergoing such job, Bono was tasked to interview British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Chancellor Gordon Brown while U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice offered her 10 favorite pieces of music. In Bono's special one-off edition to get public support, "The Independent"'s front page headline on Tuesday stated in big, stark letters "No News Today," while underneath was written, "Just 6,500 Africans died today as a result of a preventable, treatable disease."
