One of the self-righteous brothers

Apparently true, but again blagged from online:

Bono, lead singer of the rock band U2, is famous throughout the entertainment industry for being more than just a little self-righteous.

At a U2 concert in Glasgow, he asked the audience for total quiet, then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands, once every few seconds.

Holding the audience in total silence, he said into the microphone,

'Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies.'

From the front of the crowd a voice with a broad Scottish accent pierced the quiet ...

'Well, fuckin stop doin it then, ya evil bastard!'
