Bono (you know, that guy who fronted that buzz band from back in the day, U2) is set to become the richest musician on the planet, according to a report from Clash.

Of course, if you were thinking that it couldn't possibly have anything in the least bit to do with U2, then you'd be right. The report says that Bono "purchased a 2.3% stake in Facebook through private equity firm Elevation Partners," and is set to pocket about $1.5 billion (£940 million) given the company's value at over $100 billion.

Once the buzz dies down you've gotta get by somehow, right?
