As the leader of iconic rock band U2, Bono is also a renowned humanitarian and charity worker. In an interview with Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning, the frontman said he's not pushing an idea of charity at all, but righting injustices when it comes to his mission to end poverty and other issues worldwide. He also discussed being a songwriter, which is, in his own words, his drug of choice:
"I cannot believe...you know, that you hear this melody line in your head. You sort of take it down. And you find words for it and an arrangement for it. And the next thing you know, you can be in a car in Tokyo. And it's on the radio. That's really my drug of choice."
Watch Bono discuss working with U2, his fight to educate people about poverty and AIDS, and how his songs are more like his parents than children in the video above with Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning.
