Bill Clinton and Bono Reveal How Music Changed Their Lives

Clinton appeared onstage immediately after Bono's speech to the audience, and he thanked the U2 frontman for penning a piece on his behalf in the current issue of Time Magazine's Most Influential 100 list.
"When you're old and grey and you've got to compete with Lady Gaga," the former president laughed, "your only shot is to get Bono to write on your behalf!"
Clinton spoke fondly of his trips to Ireland and the 15th anniversary of the IRA ceasefire in the North, and urged Irish Americans to stay involved in the cause of peace and justice.
"I've never had a greater honor than to be involved in the Irish peace process

  1. I love how President Clinton expresses his love for music. It's such an important and life transforming art. I have a t shirt I bought from the Clinton Museum Store which says "Music fueled my imagination...Bill Clinton" I love it and wear it all the time. His commitment to the arts is admirable.
    Oh, and he looks GREAT in the pic!!!
