Bono has given some valuable advice to all budding rockstars out there to learn from the mistakes of himself and his bandmates.
Speaking to Q Magazine, Bono urged aspiring musicians to pay attention to business as well as their art, saying that being “smart with your art… doesn’t mean you have to be dumb with your money.”
The Irish singer turned activist told the magazine that Adam is an intelligent man but sometimes things can go terribly wrong.
Bono said, “Pay attention to business – it’s really a drag when it goes wrong.
“Adam Clayton, normally so fastidious about his friends, his art, his style, can fill you in on what can happen when you’re too preoccupied with beauty… ugly stuff.
“Just because you’re smart with your art or your activism doesn’t mean you have to be dumb with your money.”
In the article Bono also warned new artists that money can be the downfall of many, and that the main reason U2 never parted ways was because they split everything equally.
Very wise words Bono.
