He plays guitar with his right hand, haven't you ever seen pics? He also draws and writes with his right hand, I've seen dozens of pics of him autographing, and the Peter and the Wolf painting pics. Right handed, no question.

My husband is left handed but plays guitar and throws football right handed. But he can't eat or write with his right hand at all. Since Bono does everything with his right I'd say it's a sure bet he's right handed.

There have been many famous left handed rock stars, such as:

Paul McCartney
Ringo Starr
Jimi Hendrix
Kurt Cobain

Bono is definitely right-handed. He even makes the peace sign with his right hand.

haha I used to too, until I forced myself to put the watch on my left wrist cos it got on my nerves when I was writing - it felt wrong for ages but then I got used to it.

Well, I'm left handed myself, thats why my curiousity gets me. I do alot with my right hand considering its a right hand world, including playing guitar.

im the only lefty in my family and i would be considered the weird one. a little strange all my life. hey, but we make great artists!
i play guitar left handed and everything else is done lefty too. i didnt want to conform to the right hand world thing i guess. tried the guitar right handed and i sucked!

Some people are also ambidextrous (sp?) which means they can use both hands the same.
