Bono Bunks at Bill Gates's house (CNN.com)

From CNN.com

Pictures through that link, but the text is right here. A particularly funny last line:

Bono bunks at Bill Gates's house

SEATTLE, Washington (Reuters) -- When U2's lead singer came to Seattle over the weekend for a concert, there was only one logical place to stay -- the home of Bill Gates, who shares Bono's passion for Third World development and relief efforts.

"I was one of 20,000 screaming fans," Microsoft Corp.'s co-founder Gates told Reuters. Gates, the world's richest man, said he got to know Bono through his work with his philanthropy.

Gates said that Irish rocker Bono was staying with him and that the two hung out together after the concert in Seattle.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, with an endowment of $28 billion, is the world's biggest charitable organization and aims to improve the health of people in the developing world.

"We're big believers that more needs to be done in developing countries," Gates said. "Let me tell you, Bono has had a huge impact."

Bono is a vocal advocate of Third World debt relief and Gates' foundation has given out more than $4 billion for global health since its inception to fight diseases such as AIDS and malaria.

Asked if their friendship would entice him to buy one of Microsoft rival Apple Computer Inc.'s black-and-red U2 edition iPods, Gates said: "Absolutely not."

yours was moved to the music forum (bang and clatter) and merged with another existing bruce thread: http://forum.interference.com/t121286.html unless there's another bruce thread you started that i haven't come across yet...

i'm not one of the news people here but i believe threads are usually closed if there's already a thread in the news forum. if you'd like to continue discussing this topic, here's the thread: http://forum.interference.com/t124861.html
