When are we gonna hear "Sir Bono"?

Geldof is knighted for his work in the area of relief for Africa, Elton John has been knighted, and I read a few days ago that a race car driver has been knighted(why?)! I would think Bono to be just as deserving as any of these....shouldn't he receive this honor as well? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Hello,

Isn't Bob Geldof from Northern Ireland. If so that would make him a British citizen. AFAIK (but don't take my word for it as I'm not British) only British citizens can be knighted in the UK. And Bono is Irish (Doh! Like we didn't knew that already).

Just wondering...

I used to think only Brits could be knighted, but what about Bob Hope? and wasn't Rudy Guiliani recently knighted? (or was I mistaken on that last?)
You could be right, but those two threw me for a loop, and made me wonder if they'd opened the gates of knighthood for other deserving, albeit non-Brit folks.

Bob Hope was born in England.

I think people outside of England can get a HONOURY knighthood, but they cannot officially use the title, but its still seen as a acknowledgement of the person in question good deeds ect

I don't think we want to see that happening. Bono's head would spontaneously combust!

Sting needs to get a knighthood. I'm pretty sure he will some time. Question is, will he get Sir Sting or Sir Gordon?

I can't quite see the Queen saying "Sir Sting."

Rock stars shouldn't be Knighted. It's not good for their image or their ego.

I'm still kicking. What the fuck happened to yours? I mean, you are an internationally famed rock n roll superstar, no?
