View the Slideshow

This weekend promises one of the groovier pre-inaugural concerts in recent memory. Crossing the stage in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC will be singers and musicians including Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Garth Brooks, Sheryl Crow, Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder and, yes, Bono. But not the not-Bono. Did you know Bono has a doppelganger? He can be found not at the Lincoln Memorial, but in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. Producer Roman Mars takes us to him.
