The rocker made the comment about the U2 frontman during a Twitter Q&A
The legendary rocker made the dismissive comment about the U2 frontman after he was asked what his opinion was of the band Foster The People. Young was asked by @akemi99 “what do you like about foster the people? #askneil btw, bono said he likes them, too… it is surprising two super stars like them..”. Young replied: “who is Bono?”.
Young was also asked by @kellyapritchard if he’d be making any more ‘rock operas’ similar to his Greendale project, to which he responded: “anything can happen”.
He also took the time to reply to @jana_pe’s question “what would happen if you were locked alone in a room with only a jar of nutella?” with the answer “creative things”.
