I find that I'm talking to less people but writing more songs. -- Bono, 1989

How Bono Saved Me

The Sun
The girl who Bono famously saved from being crushed at Live Aid has spoken for the first time about her incredible moment -- 20 years on.

Kal Khalique was just 15 when Bono saw she was being overwhelmed by the Wembley crowd. The U2 legend leapt off stage and pulled her free -- then smooched with her as his band played on.

Kal, of Hampstead, North London, said: "The crowd surged and I was suffocating -- then I saw Bono.

"Security helped him pull me out, then he held me and we danced. My heart was pounding."
