Bono Wins Hall of Fame Gong and Says He 'Hates' It

Thu Nov 11, 8:32 PM ET  Entertainment - Reuters

LONDON (Reuters) - Bono, lead singer of Irish rock band U2, was handed an award inducting him into the UK Music Hall of Fame. Minutes later the reluctant recipient joked that he was tempted to hand it back.   

After an evening of glamour and gloss Thursday to launch the inaugural awards chosen by the British public, the frontman quipped: "I want to go and kill myself now.

"I really didn't want to come," he told Reuters Television.

"Only respect for the people who were running the show has me here. I hate the idea of being in the UK Hall of Fame to be honest with you ... We don't want to be in any Hall of Fame until we're retired or dead."

U2, which is launching a new album "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb," was one of five acts named as founding members of the new institution along with Madonna (news - web sites), Bob Marley, the Beatles and Elvis Presley.

British singer Cliff Richard (news) and The Shadows won the award for the 1950s, the Rolling Stones the 1960s, Queen the 1970s, Michael Jackson (news) the 1980s and Robbie Williams (news) the 1990s.

"It's not another award," Madonna told Reuters. "I think I'm in very good company. I'm honored to be part of that group."

if it has ANYTHING to do with music, that's fucked up! unless he's accepting it for the band and the rest couldn't be there or something...but it seems unlikely. hmmmmm

It does... I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm a Bono gal when it comes to a certain type of fandom, but when it comes to music, I adore, admire, & respect them equally -- And so should the media! AND (if I may say so) music video directors! (But I won't get all into that here...)

I agree...though bono is by far my favorite, and the frontman is called the frontman for that reason - they get the most attention - I have always liked when they gave all four guys equal time in the spotlight. needs to happen more. with many of the bands I really love I couldn't tell you the names of some of the others in the group (unless I read up on them or something), and that sucks.
