Bono’s band have undergone some back room changes recently. Manager Paul McGuinness, who’s looked after their affairs for 35 years, has passed the day-to-day running to Guy Oseary, who also manages Madonna.
The frontman recently told how he’d been chased down a street by a group of anarchists who shouted “Make Bono history” at him, admitting: “Even I thought it was a pretty good line.”
