In interview, Bono cites Nelson Mandela's wit, restraint
Bono and Nelson Mandela
By Steven Zeitchik
Few entertainment luminaries have had as keen an eye into Nelson Mandela’s personality and worldview than Bono, The Edge and the rest of U2.
Just a day before Mandela’s passing, Bono and Edge were speaking to The Times about Madiba, whom they campaigned with on numerous social issues, particularly the global AIDS crisis. Band members felt strongly enough about the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s legacy that they contributed a song to the soundtrack of Justin Chadwick’s “Mandela” biopic, a closing-credit number titled “Ordinary Love.”
