Bono says his music will last 100 years

BEIJING, Nov. 22-- How would you define U2's frontman, Bono? A dedicated activist for the world's poor and those stricken with AIDS? Or a talented musician?

According to Bono himself, he'd rather be remembered for his music than his activism.

In a recent TV interview on CBS in America, Bono expressed his hope that his activism will be forgotten along with the disappearance of world poverty and disease.

Meanwhile, the Irish rocker also revealed his musical ambitions. Bono predicted that his music would still be remembered in 100 years time, because his bandíŽs songs traverse an unprecedented emotional terrain.

The 45-year-old singer and his band U2 have already won 14 Grammy awards. But they show no sign of slowing down. But rather they seem to seek more and more out of their music.

Since 1999, Bono has worked to help end the scourge of AIDS, eliminate poverty in Africa, and persuade governments to forgive Third World debt.
