"I thought of Zooropa at the time as a work of genius. I really thought our pop discipline was matching our experimentation and this was our Sgt Pepper. I was a little wrong about that."
- Bono on the Zooropa album
Bono received an Honorary Knighthood from the Queen of England (March 2007) and a France's Legion D'Honneur, presented by President Jacques Chirac (2003) for his humanitarian work.
