There is no denying that a sense of the preposterous drifts around Bono like dry ice. But the interesting question is: so what? Put “preposterous” in a sentence with “front man of massive stadium rock band that has sold 175 million records” and it becomes a tautology. Is Mick Jagger not preposterous? Is Lady Gaga modest?

It’s about everybody who has to let go of something perfect.
THERE GOES MY MIRACLE is the greatest singing and writing of your life, I guess it took your whole life. And yes, some of us feel like we’ve lived it with you.
