I’m wondering whether I’ll do this consistently to award it its own category.
Here’s an extract from the BBC article, “US stars scoop MTV Europe Awards”
Sir Paul was greeted by rapturous applause from his home crowd on being presented with the one-off lifetime achievement award by U2 frontman Bono.
“These MTV awards are great and glamorous occasions, but on behalf of all the artists in this room, I will tell you something,” he said.
“I think we all suspect someday when all of us are gone and this great hall is no longer here, we sense, we fear our names will be forgotten.
There is one person in this hall tonight whose songs we know will be here now and forever.
There is one person in this hall tonight whose work is immortal.
There is only one Paul McCartney.”
There is only one person whose songs we know will be here now and forever. There is only one person whose work is immortal. He was, is, in that hall, and He is present everyone. There is only one Jesus Christ. The truth is our names will eventually be consigned to the dustbin of history. But His name will go on forever and ever.
A bit short-sighted Bono. And I think that hammers the last nail in the proverbial coffin of speculation that Bono is a Christian.
