"We always see this planet as belonging to God -- I think it belongs to us. We probably stole it from God. But you can try and give bits of it back."

Happy Birthday, Bono!

@U2, May 09, 2011
By: @U2 staff


Everyone's favorite vocalist / lyricist / world-saving rock star turns 51 on Tuesday, so please join us in singing a quick, little ditty in his honor:

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday, dear Bono,
Happy birthday to you!

To mark the occasion, we have a couple treats for readers to enjoy:

Several members of our staff have contributed their own thoughts to an essay that we've titled, What I've Learned From Bono. You may identify with some of what we've shared.

Our very own Tassoula E. Kokkoris will appear at 7:40 am GMT Tuesday morning on Planet Rock's Breakfast With Lucio show, talking about why we should wish Bono a happy birthday in the show's regular segment called "Alternative Thought for the Day." You can listen live online or, if you miss it, look for the "on demand" link at the top of the page; the segment will be available for one week. (Update: Here's a direct link to the audio, and Tassoula comes on at about the 1:50:05 mark.)
