NEW YORK (Billboard) - U2 frontman Bono has partnered with Hard Rock International to release a customized T-shirt for Hard Rock's Signature Series. Proceeds from the sale of the T-shirt, designed by Bono and available at Hard Rock locations worldwide, will benefit the Wildlife Conservation Cotton Initiative, which aims to educate African farmers on land management and growing technique. Bono is the 25th musician to design a T-shirt for the series, joining such acts as Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Green Day and Ozzy Osbourne.
