I wish Bono could get knighted...

Unfortunately it only applies to the English...

Sir Paul Hewson
Sir Bono

Has a nice ring, doesn't it?

Please. No. As it is, he comes off as the egotistic supreme commander of rock n roll.

Zoot's right, he isn't.

Bono's the Supreme Pimp of Rock N' Roll.

Bob Geldof got knighted

I'm not sure how i'd feel if Bono did, though, not that he doesn't deserve the recogniton... but it doesn't really fit a rock star

You mean he doesn't have magic powers already?

Bono's sunglasses give him his superpowers, I thought everyone knew that

And Bono could get knighted. Whether or not he would want to is another story.

I think Bono is too 'proud' of his irishness to get knighted in Britain..

Bob Geldof only has an Honourary Knighthood, not a real one.

I agree.

I would ask for people to recall that several years ago U2 politely declined to perform at a concert celebrating the Queen's reign in England. (this was in 2002 or 2003)

I would think this says something "under the radar" about how any of them might feel about the "honor" of being knighted by the British Order.

But I agree - the title does have a nice sound to it.

We all know that Bono deserves a knighthood (well I think he deserves it anyway).

But Bono is proud of the rugged Irishman that he is, so will probably decline the opportunity to become a Knight of the Realm.

Just a thought.
