Australian nurse inspired Bono

“As we went along Bono began chatting away, telling me he was a singer with a band called U2 and that he had only recently been in Adelaide. I had no idea who they were…”

The woman who hadn’t heard of U2 or Bono – to be fair, it was 1985 – is Australian nurse Sue Germein, who was part of the team Bono and Ali joined on their mission in Ethiopia. Bono now says she was the woman that got him fired up about the issues in Africa.
