"It's the most un-rock 'n' roll thing you could do, so I never ever talked about it, but that was actually my obsession before rock-and-roll."

Bono Honors Rushdie at GQ Awards

@U2, September 05, 2012
By: Matt McGee / @mattmcgee


A year after accepting a GQ Award, Bono was back for the 2012 event to present longtime friend Salman Rushdie with the GQ Inspiration of the Year award. It happened Tuesday night in London. Bono gave a short introduction in which he talked about the time in the 1990s that Rushdie hid briefly at the Hewson home after a fatwa had been issued on the author's life.

You can see video of Bono's introduction on GQ's website, and there are a couple photos of Bono's arrival on Zimbio.

Last September, U2 picked up the Band of the Year title at the GQ Awards.
