cbsbono4 Bono Has Tea With Russian President

What does it take to have a sit-down chat with [lastfm]U2[/lastfm] frontman [lastfm]Bono[/lastfm]? How about running a country of 141 million? Russian president Dmitry Medvedev had tea with [lastfm]Bono[/lastfm] on the eve of [lastfm]U2[/lastfm]’s first ever show in Moscow to talk HIV prevention and classic rock.

You are doing important things, because taking care of people is not only a job for politicians,” Medvedev told the [lastfm]U2[/lastfm] lead singer. “The charity work that you and your colleagues do has brought you respect all over the world.”

[lastfm]Bono[/lastfm], for his part, reportedly stayed on message, talking about trying to eradicate the transmission of HIV from mother to daughter by 2015.

But that wasn’t the only topic of conversation between the two. [lastfm]Bono[/lastfm] was there to build bridges.

“I come here to cross the great divide between me, a [lastfm]Led Zeppelin[/lastfm] fan, and you, the [lastfm]Deep Purple[/lastfm] fan,” he joked.

When not trying to throw his arms around the world, [lastfm]Bono[/lastfm] is a rock and roll singer. No kidding! His band plays Moscow today.
