News: Powerhouse Bono has the edge

Posted on Sunday, October 06 @ 06:30:32 CEST by Macphisto

(Irish Examiner) -- BONO’S ability to bend the ears of world leaders has led to him being named the most powerful man in the music world.

As well as his position as leader of the world's biggest rock group, U2, Q Magazine says it is the 42-year-old star's abilities as a lobbyist which put him at the forefront of top people in the music business.

Highest British entry is Thom Yorke, 34-year-old frontman of rock act Radiohead, for his abilities to shift vast quantities of CDs and campaign on various issues. Sir Paul McCartney, 60, is in joint ninth, along with 69-year-old Yoko Ono, for their position as bosses of Apple Corp, which owns the commercial rights to The Beatles.

Former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller, 42, who was behind the worldwide TV hit Pop Idol, is ranked at number 10.

Nirvana leader Kurt Cobain is in fifth place despite being dead for eight years.

Rapper Eminem, 28, is third thanks to his colossal albums sales of around 25 million despite his "white trash" roots.

The rest of the top 10 is made up of music industry chiefs.

Assistant editor of Q Mark Blake said: "With this list we wanted to reflect the music industry's biggest movers and shakers both on and offstage.

"This means the musicians wielding power and influence and those on the business side who help in making it all possible.
