Bono Serenades Warren Buffett At Forbes 400 Summit.

Warren Buffett was given the inaugural Forbes 400 Lifetime Achievement Award for Philanthropy, but got more than just that honor.

As Randall Lane tells us on Forbes.com, on Wednesday night in New York Buffett got a song from U2's Bono, also a prominent philanthropist, who sang his own Buffettized version of "Home on the Range."

Through their "Giving Pledge" organization, Buffett and his friend Bill Gates have been asking America's super-rich to pledge at least 50 percent of their net worth will go to charity while they are alive or after their death.

Here's the Forbes video of Bono and clip of Buffett's acceptance talk ("I must be out of my mind to try to follow that").
