Mr. Bono Goes To Washington

Posted on Tuesday, June 05 @ 02:22:22 CEST by Macphisto

(Spin) -- U2's Bono has been a very, very busy man of late, what with having babies and being on a world tour and all. And now he's adding a small jaunt to Washington, DC, to the list. The former Paul Hewson was recently asked to speak with a real live presidential advisor about the AIDS epidemic in Africa, as well as third world debt and debt relief efforts.

Bono, who is currently out on the Elevation 2001 tour in support of U2's All That You Can't Leave Behind, was in Washington to speak as part of an AIDS conference being held there. He picks back up on the Elevation tour in about two weeks. And according to reports on Reuters, Bono cast recent congressional efforts to curb world debt in a positive light. ''The most extraordinary thing about debt cancellation is that it was a bipartisan effort,'' Bono reportedly said Friday after a meeting with White House deputy chief of staff Joshua Bolten. ''We have an ongoing discussion here with people in the White House about the AIDS issue and Africa. It's very, very important to this president and the administration. I just thought I would throw my tuppence in.'' In related news, I too have a tuppence and if you are lucky, one day I will share it with the world. In related news, Bono and his wife Ali welcomed a healthy little seven pound, seven ounce boy into the world a couple weeks ago. He is their fourth child, after Jordan, 11, Eve, 9, and Elijah, who will be 2 this August. In other related news, "Elevation (Tomb Raider Mix)" (by former NIN man, Chris Vrenna and the Butthole Surfers' Paul Leary) is tearing stuff up right now. The track is getting a commercial release as part of the soundtrack to Tomb Raider, starring Angelina Jolie. The disc is due out June 5 on Elektra, and also contains tracks by the Chemical Brothers, Moby, and OutKast.
