Bono pic ?

Evening Everyone!
The other nite i was watching the rock and roll hall of fame induction ceremony and they showed a clip of Bono inducting Bob Marley and i almost choked on my dinner. (my roomie says i really gotta stop doing that. but hey if ur gonna choke to death...what a way to go, seeing bono!) anyway, I've been trying to find a pic of that but i haven't had any luck so i was wondering if anyone had it or knew where i could find it...or if one even existed!
thanx! have a "beautiful day"

Hmm, good question. I actually don't have any pictures of that, otherwise I'd post them (or at least attempt to, *lol*) but I've been trying to find the induction speech because i haven't actually heard/read it. Doe anyone know where I can find it, or could someone post it here?

I wanted to see that too. I think our only hope is if someone could please make video still captures of the VH1 special. Let's beg!

Here it is, enjoy!

I know claiming Bob Marley as Irish might be a little difficult here tonight, but bear with me. Jamaica and Ireland have lots in common....Naomi Campbell, Chris Blackwell, a fondness for little green leaves...the weed....religion....the philosophy of procrastination (don't put off til tomorrow what you can put off til the day after)...unless of course its freedom. We are both islands, we're both colonies---JAMAICA IRELAND-....the most common yoke...the struggle for identity, the struggle for independence....the vulnerable and uncertain future that is left behind when the jackboot of empire has finally retreated...roots...the getting up, the standing up-and the hard bit-the staying up. In such a struggle, an often violent struggle, the voice of Bob Marley was a voice of reason. So when I heard Bob Marley first I not only felt it, I felt I understood it. It was 1976 in Dublin, we were listening to punk...it was The Clash who brought him home to us, that and EC's cover of "I Shot the Sherriff". Bob Marley and the Wailers had love songs you could admit listening to, songs of hurt....hard but healing...Tuff Gong politics without the rhetoric, songs of freedom where that word meant something again, new hymns to a dancing God, redemption songs, a sexy revolution where Jah is Jehovah on street level, not over his people...with His people not just stylin...jammin the Lion of Judah down the line of Judah from Ethiopia where it all began for the rastamen, where everything began....well maybe.
I spent some time in Ethiopia with my wife Ali, and everywhere we went we saw Bob Marley's face...wise royal Solomon, and the queen of Sheba. On every street corner there he was, dressed to hustle God..."let my people go" an ancient plea...prayers catching fire in Mozambique, Nigeria, The Lebanon, Alabama, Detroit, NEW YORK CITY, Notting Hill, Belfast....a king in dreads....a third and first world super star. Mental slavery ends where imagination begins....here was this new music rocking out of the shantytowns, born from calypso and raised on the chilled out R n' B, beamed in from New Orleans, lolling, lopping rhythms...telling it like it is, like it was, like it ever shall be...skanking mon! Ska, Bluebeat, Rocksteady, Reggae, Dub and now ragga...and all of this from a man who drove 3 BMWs, BMW?!? BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS!!! (that was his excuse!) rock and roll loves its juvenilia, its caricatures, its cartoons, the protest singer, the gospel singer, the popstar, the sex god, and of course...your more mature messiah types?! We love extremes and we're expected to choose... the mud of the blues or the oxygen of gospel, the "hellhound on our trail" or the "band of angels". Marley didn't choose or didn't walk down the middle, he raced to the edges embracing all extremes and creating a oneness. He wanted everything at the same time and was everything at the same time...prophet, soul rebel, rasta man, herbsman, wild man, a natural mystic man, ladies man, island man, soccer man, family man, Rita's man, showman, shaman, human, JAMAICAN!
