Jesse Helms: Bono's my buddy
Jesse Helms: Bono's my buddy !!
Former Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) considers Irish rock star Bono “an enormously impressive gentleman” and a friend of his and his wife’s.
So says the conservative icon in his memoirs, Here’s Where I Stand, due out late this month.
The 83-year-old Helms confesses he’d never heard of the U2 front man before their first meeting in 2001 but his “younger staff members had” and “lined up to get their pictures taken.”
