Bono Loves America

Irish rocker BONO has always enjoyed a rich love affair with America, because he finds the country a cultural inspiration.

The U2 singer gets angry when he hears other musicians complaining about having to travel to the States and performing there.

He says, "Waking up in Memphis, Tennessee, where Stax was born, or where ELVIS PRESLEY cut MYSTERY TRAIN or where MARTIN LUTHER KING was shot dead is not crap.

"America is just full of possibilities. Nobody buys their cars anymore so it gets angry and EMINEM happens - one of the great writers of the age comes out of Detroit."
