Bono Named a Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire
Bono adding a more prestigious title to that of rock star. The U2 frontman was named a Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire Thursday March 29th.
The honor, given in an informal, laugh-filled ceremony in the Dublin home of British Ambassador David Reddaway, is given in recognition of Bono's services to the music industry and for his humanitarian work.
Bono, an Irish citizen, won't have the title of "sir" before his name since the honor is reserved for citizens of the United Kingdom or British Commonwealth countries.
Accepting the honor, Bono was accompanied by his wife Alison Stewart and their children Jordan, Eve, Elijah, and John. Fellow U2 members The Edge and Adam Clayton also attending the ceremony.
