TRANSCRIPT: BONO – HUSBAND, FATHER, ADVOCATE (FOCUS ON THE FAMILY INTERVIEW)
@U2, July 10, 2013
On June 25th, Bono was Jim Daly’s guest for a Focus On The Family radio interview. The interview was taped on May 23 in New York City, while U2 was working on its next album. Audio of the interview is currently available on Focus On The Family’s website, and we’ve done a transcription of the interview that’s presented below.
Jim : Let’s start with your marriage and your family, because this is Focus On The Family, and so many people are interested in the health of the family, the well-being of the family, because we think it’s the institution that God put in place to bring life about. And you’ve been married to your wife for 30 years in a business that rips marriages apart. How have you done that ?
Bono : I’d say my Missus is patient more than anything. I married an extraordinary woman. In fact I — the same week I joined U2, I met Ali. Ali Stewart. And she’s a mysterious … creature. I still don’t quite feel like I’ve gotten to know her. I’m still trying, and we’ve just been through everything together. And I think, to answer your question seriously, probably, you know, I think she’s very self-reliant. So, I would need her more than she probably needs me. I hold onto her very tightly.
