Bono Rushes To Friend's Funeral

Irish rocker BONO raced to Nebraska to sing at a private funeral for SUSAN BUFFETT, wife of billionaire investor WARREN BUFFETT.

The U2 frontman worked with Buffet on AIDS awareness and prevention schemes and was devastated when she died of a stroke on Thursday (25JUL04), at the age of 72, while she and her husband were visiting friends in Cody, Wyoming.

Bono flew into Omaha on Sunday night (1AUG04) for Monday's (02AUG04) service and performed REM hit track EVERYBODY HURTS.

Buffett's spokeswoman said the couple's three children - PETER, SUSAN and HOWARD - also spoke at the service.
