The U2 singer’s private equity firm, Elevation Partners, owns 1.5% of the shares in Facebook. When the social networking site floats on the stock exchange later in the year it’s estimated that his stake could be worth around £630 million pounds.

On paper it would mean Bono would have around £180 million more in the bank than Sir Paul McCartney meaning he’d leapfrog the former Beatle to top the rich list of rockers.
