No 'Sir' for me, thank you.
"You have permission to call me anything you want- except sir, all right? Lords of lords, your demigodness, that'll do." Bono was knighted today in a ceremony held in Dublin at the home of British Ambassador David Reddaway. His official title is "Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire." He was acknowledged and revered for his humanitarian works and services such as his Red Campaign and work with Bob Geldof organizing Live 8. Even though U2 has been said to be the largest band in the world apparently Bono still has trouble getting through 'some doors.' "Bono admitted that honours such as these "really help me get through a few doors I wouldn't get through. And that's the truth, that's the way the world is," he said."
