U2 Biography - Bono

Name: Paul Hewson
Date of Birth: May 10th, 1960
Place of Birth: Dublin
Parents: Iris and Bobby Hewson. Their marriage was very unusual for that time in Ireland, because Bonos mother was protestant and his father is catholic.
Siblings: 7 years elder brother Norman Hewson
Marital Status: Bono has been married to Alison Stewart since August 1982.
Children: Bono is father of two girls, Jordan (10.05.89) and Eve (07.07.91), and a son named Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q (18.08.99).

Bono  grew up in Dublin with his parents Iris and Bobby and his brother Norman in the local part Bullyman. His mother died on September 10th, 1974. Once Bono said about her death:"Home was no longer home, just a house...".Later he dedicated the song "Tomorrow" to her.

Since this time, Bono drove the time away for himself with some kids who called themselves "The Village" (under them Fionan Hanvey alias Gavin Friday). Their favourite occupation consisted in to rebel against every imaginable norm. Bono then also received his nickname "Bonovox" (roman for "good voice"). Gavin set up the band "The Virgin Prunes" with some Village-boys for which Bono sang sometimes. Then he discovered Larrys notice on the black board of Mount Temple High School and applied himself.

If one may give belief to newspapers reports, he was planned first as lead guitarist, singer and songwriter by the band. Then he should play the rhythm guitar instead of the lead guitar, then only sing and to the good end he should only manage the band. Bono offered resistance and remained the frontman of the group.
