Bono Named "Commander"

Bono has been named a commander, which is France's highest cultural honor. The U2 singer was made a Commander of Arts and Letters in recognition of his contributions to both the arts and to charity. Nice addition to that resume, Paul Hewson.
"It is unspeakably special to receive an award from France for being an artist," Bono said at the ceremony. "This is a huge honor for me, but really it belongs to the band. I've got the biggest mouth and the loudest voice, but the music we make comes from each other."
