Paul David Hewson best known with his stage name Bono is the lead singer of the Irish rock band, U2. He is married to Alison Stewart and has four children. He joined U2 after calling an advertisement posted at his school by Larry Mullen Jr. Bono turned up for the audition claiming to be able to play guitar.
In 1992, together with U2's guitarist The Edge, Bono bought and refurbished Dublin's two-star 70-bedroom Clarence Hotel and converted it into a five-star 49-bedroom hotel which quickly gained a reputation as the most stylish (and expensive) hotel in the city. In 2002, Bono wrote the introduction to the "Book of Psalms", one of nine books of the Bible published individually in Canongate Book's "Pocket Canons" series. Bono appears in the 2002 List of "100 Greatest Britons"
Bono made a large investment in the Forbes Media group through his private equity investment firm Elevation Partners, which became the first outsider to invest in Forbes. The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but reports said the stake was worth about 250 million dollars.
