Wheels of Fire

Horse hair seats, an impressive stereo system, and a fire extinguisher. What do they have in common? They’re all things you can find in Bono’s car.

In today’s Irish Mirror, Bono’s friend Paul Birkett (PepsiCo Ireland CEO) reveals that Bono’s interest in customizing the interior of his cars is a dangerous one.

“He has speakers in the door, a graphic equalizer, a multi CD player, and a spectacular number of amplifiers,” Birkett said. Because the stereo system consumes so much power, it is considered a fire hazard, which is why he keeps a fire extinguisher inside the car.
